    That would run a few bulbs.
    It would have taken them years to get to 6078 Kwh! :-)

    Thanks pw,mustang,aztom,ted,and walksoftly!maybe they left them on 24-7?

    Twelve 40 watt bulbs all at once or shut the lights out & plug in the one sided toaster! :-)
    Bluffton, is that in Indiana?

    HAHA!Making toast one slice at a time in the dark!Yes Indiana(about 20 mile from me.)

    Didn't those old toasters do two slices one side at a time & you wouldn't be in the dark, you would have the faint glow of the toaster element!

    ...and the slight aroma of burnt ozone(from the over heated- tar coated wires) in the morning air!
