so, what happens when it warms up




it snows ... 3 -4 overnight and thru the morning....but first 20' .... ahhh, balmy 20' ...

So yesterday, I walked, yes walked, to the Courthouse (Government Center for the politically correct) for an afternoon meeting -- I just needed to move and it felt good to move!  At said meeting -- I got to listen in to the Emergency Mgmt conference call  regarding the propane issues and then  learned way to much about anthrax (way to much--after that presentation I'll be giving up the annual spring mushroom hunt) ...

The propane issue has arrived on Daisy Lane -- our current (note:current) supplier wanted 5.24 per gallon.  Needless to say a few of us got rather excited.  New tank and provider coming Monday -- need to run the old tank down to nothing (or next to nothing) .. and the price from new provider $ 2.95 ... so tell me --

     is it a shortage or is it a perceived shortage .... and then price gouging, new provider has been extremely helpful (#1 has been chatting with him all fall ... ) the rest of the neighborhood uses the new provider too ...  

     and the games continue ....

"Price Gouging?" Hmmm. Could it possibly be????? When there's such a huge difference in price, what other explanation can there be?

Stay warm, my friend, stay warm.
