Article today says winter hearing bills are expected to be up 50% this winter.  Definitely feel for those who can't burn wood.

I still see folks, young able bodies ones, taking delivery of stove oil for heating. But not only that, grains still have to be dried, so farmers rely on it, or at least a middle man in the process does. :-\  I can tell ya a lot of these 'new age' farmers cut grain in the dew of the night. Never see them in daylight, not helping the process.

My father found propane drying at a local facility was too high 30 years ago. Dried his own by making sure it was cut the right time (fully ripe, no dew) and forcing the air through it in storage. I can't remember when propane was ever cheap up here. I remember the hunting sportsmen from the USA always crossed over to Maine for propane or gas for as long as I can remember. :D
