We're in a January thaw that we seem to have developed over the last decade or so. Its nice to have things clearing away enough to use the scooters while its not too cold, but we know winter isn't over by any means.

We had a beautiful snowfall the past two days and expect to see 40°F today.

Filled with French toast (with blueberries) and, of course, coffee, and I'm ready to tackle the day. Leaving for Florida Tuesday and have much to do today in preparation. Needless to say, I'll be sitting on my butt watching two football games later. Won't get much done then!

Life is good.

In my area, propane costs 60% more than natural gas.

It costs 8% less than oil.

It costs 20% less than electricity.  Electricity is cheaper here than in most of the USA, so in most places it would cost much less than that.

I confess to smoking a pipe once every other day. My uncle gave me a pipe when I turned 18 to "keep up the tradition" of male smokers in the family. I've smoked off and on--mostly off--ever since, and always outdoors. I figure, at my age, it's not going to hurt me. My doctor agrees.

Thomas, I have a 500 gallon propane tank. A winter fill-up cost me $2.32/gal. The tank took in 221 gallons. They never totally fill it up--usually 70% full. I like the heat propane produces. Unlike #2 fuel oil, it doesn't have an odor. Do I save money, you ask?  Yes and no. I save by heating my house with wood, perhaps at 80%. When I'm gone or before I wake up or when it's really, really cold, the propane furnace comes on. So I'm not saving money there.

You'd have to research whether propane is cheaper than electric heat. I just don't know. As long as I'm able, I'll continue to cut and burn wood. Not only am I saving big bucks (propane fill-up cost $572 including taxes and "hazmat" fee), but I enjoy the whole firewood experience, from cutting to burning.

I like it, Thomas!
