K is for Kilowatts.............
A bit boring as far as a photo goes, but it does do well as a stock image.
This little meter tracks our electricity usage and it measures that use in kilowatts.
I really hate to see that little dial in the middle spinning so quickly that you can't read it - the dollar signs add up way too quickly!
Luckily it was slow during this picture - the numbers are readable for once.
In this country we usually use the Imperial System for measuring that includes inches, pounds, and gallons.
We measure our electricity in kilos, which is part of the Metric System.
I think each of these systems work as long as one is used exclusively. I have a problem when I try to convert one to the other.
I bet most people don't even give it much thought as most of the world uses the Metric System, so there is no need for them to convert.
We will catch up someday!
