Loaded up on propane…

By Spring I generally have a veritable stack of empty propane bottles. In ordinary times I don’t worry about topping them off till Autumn, but these show signs of not being ordinary times.


One of my big kitchen bottles was empty and that one had to go to town anyway so Neighbor D and I loaded it and three 30-pounders into his pickup, lifting heavy things a lot and significantly lightening my wallet. But not as significantly as feared: I was pleasantly surprised to find that, like last June, propane hasn’t really tracked the rise in gasoline cost. It’s up, certainly, but not very much. Worked out to $2.90/gal before sales tax. So that’s out of the way. I have turned the bedroom heater off for the season, so that bleeding has stopped.

    That is a pleasant surprise. One thing I did last year was to install a kit into my Yamaha 2600C generator that lets me run it on gasoline or propane, and these days, I usually run it on the latter. Propane also has the advantage of not going bad the way gasoline can. But, the power output is a little lower.

    If you have the room, stock up on everything you use. For you and Tobie. Water being the first thing.

To the stake with the heretic!
