This January has been one of the coldest on record. With 10 days of highs lower than 20 degrees, and five days at or below zero it was almost as cold as the Polar Vortex of 2014. These extended cold temperatures mean we’re all spending more energy to heat our homes, and more time indoors. This adds up to higher energy bills, which can be a surprise when the previous year was milder than normal. For instance January 2018 was colder than any January since 2014.
