Well folks here we go again....Because a lack of preparation on our nations part, for the worst winter that the Midwest has had in years, we are being rationed on how much propane we can order. 200 gals across the board no matter the size of your tank for everybody nobody is special and the prices are INSANE!!! We have heard of some paying $5.50 a gallon!!! Our propane company is at $4.69 a gallon(Monday) and we thought $2.69 was STUPID! In Laws are fixing to pay 750.00 to get 200 gals for their tank. Looks like we may have to think about alernative heating for our place. These prices are not gonna drop all that much when this is done. It will take awhile for things to resolve themselves but I am thinkin we won't see the prices below $3 when done with this which means for a 250 gal tank (they only fill to 80% or 200 gal.) it will cost you no less than $600 bucks to get your tank filled. WOW! then if you have to do that a couple times a year or for some more you might as well think about something else to heat your house or cook food or dry your clothes with! At this moment electric is cheaper than propane so we went out yesterday and got ourselves a nice fireplace heater for the bedroom. Never dreamed we would have had to do that.....
We have already been looking into alternative electric uses now will add our heating, cooking needs. Looking more primitive all the time!!!
I am thinking the AMISH are on to something here!! LOL! Have you ever met a cold, starving Amish folk, nor have I!
On the homefront it snowed this last week and is still here. Temps haven't been above 32* for over a week. And it isn't nice it is really icy. A glaze on top!
