To many folks, there's nothing better than getting warm and toasty after coming in from the cold.
But many East Texans are actually thinking twice before turning up their heat because of the costs.
Today at PATH in Tyler, clients were coming in needing help paying those high energy bills.
PATH is a non-profit agency and they're trying to help East Texans keep warm and get their bills paid.
One client's sister is on dialysis and is unable to work.
Her energy bill was over $500 and that doesn't even include last week's near 100 hours of below freezing temperatures.
If you are having trouble paying some of those bills, local energy providers say just give them a call as soon as possible.
Many of them offer adjustment plans to make payments easier.
