Taking a meter reading is the most obvious task to carry out this evening (as close to midnight as possible). Before you do that please make the most of your gas and electric while it is at the cheaper rate. Take a shower, get all your washing done, do a batch cook if possible and put the hot water on.
This winter is going to be grim. For those who can't see that, please note that there are already several businesses you know that have either closed or are in the process of closing down - permanently. This is being replicated across the country.
Remember that for something to be 'built back better' it first has to be destroyed. You are the carbon they want to reduce. Disappoint them, always.
