Pennsylvania woman shocked by $284 bln electricity bill

An error left Mary Horomanski of Erire Pa. with a $284 billion electric bill

Mary Horomanski received an electric bill for more than $284 billion.

A U.S. woman got the shock of her life after receiving an electricity bill of US$284.46 billion (NZ$404.53 billion).

The hilarious and terrible thing about this is that she would have been on the hook for a minimum payment in December of $28,156 had she not gotten that bill adjusted.

Wind Chill Advisory entire Chicago area tonight and Wednesday forenoon
The National Weather Service has issued a wind chill advisory for Pipestone County from midnight tonight until noon on Wednesday. A cold front passed through overnight last night and brought with it some absolutely bone chilling temperatures and wind chills.

"I can't recall ever seeing a bill for billions of dollars", the spokesperson told the Erie Times-News. Naturally, she blamed her Christmas lights. The company said she just had to make a minimum payment of $28,000 by the end of December.

Her son quickly contacted Penelec - and was told it was an error.

A spokesman for Penelec's parent company First Energy addressed the incorrect bill situation, suggesting that a decimal point must have been accidentally moved.

Jobless rates fell in 24 US states, record lows in 5
Cullman County remained one of the lowest in the state at 3 percent, which at this time a year ago was 4.7 percent. Unemployment rates have dropped to record lows in five states, including the "yellow hammer" state of Alabama.

I once lived in an illegal apartment in Brooklyn where the landlord divvied up one electric bill among the tenants, allegedly to mitigate suspicion from The Authorities. She told her son to give her a heart beat monitor as a Christmas present. Mary Horomanski was shocked when she saw the number of zeroes in her statement, wondering if the Christmas lights were somehow to blame. The power company acknowledged the mistake and said they really appreciated the customer reaching out.

It was only after Horomanski's online statement was fixed that it reflected the due amount as $284.46.
