Default Electric Bill this winter.

Traveling for a living has one advantage. Your utilities are a lot lower than most.
Been off since Nov and with this cold winter I"m getting a reality check on my small 1600 sq foot home this month on the electric bill.
Suppose its a personal question but for those that don't mind sharing what has your electric bill been running the past two months as cold as its been and if you don't have your location listed please at least put the state.

1900 SF home, two story in NW Florida. Built in 2003, reasonably energy efficient. Last month $169, this month $229. My Dad's older home was $600. Everyone I know is paying lots more to stay warm this year.
