Still keeping warm
Well, December has come and gone, so that means its time to go count how many pellets I used last month. Lets see: 1..2..3..4.. Only 1,720 pounds. Could have been better, but could have been a lot worse. Course there were a couple days last week were in only got down to 22°F at night and so I didn't light the pellet furnace at all those nights. And I had it taken apart for re-wiring, and it was still smoking from some leaks so I wasn't using the auto-start.
Still, I'll take the credit for only using it at needed (and only having the propane heat go one once), and tally up.
Brought home another 1,600 pounds from Home Depot in my Highlander the other night (with just enough room for me to drive and Max to wiggle his right pinky). Max thought it was funny being burried in pellets up to his eyebrows. The car took it well, though if it had been any farther I might not have chanced it. Luckily HD is only about 3 miles away. With the 1,360 pounds in the garage, I think we have enough for about six weeks, then I'll need another load. Maybe next year I'll rent the HD truck for 90 minutes (only $20), the clerk said it would hold 3,000 pounds.
We'll see what happens after my trip this week. With the way jonmarie likes the house heated, I still may need another 3,000 pounds this winter.
