I took the oil road for summer HW too. The tank was only down 107 gallons, so I it filled up, repiped everything, and fired the ol' gal up right up. Been good to me so far.
The really good news is that I got my electric bill down to $73.
If i can go another month without using AC, then it should be lower since the blower on the K6 isn't on anymore.
Today is all about clean up here. I was going to take the ol Amtrol apart and peak inside, but I just want to get rid of it! Lots of recycling to take down to the dump too.
The grass I planted 2 weeks back is starting to take hold so I got that going for me. Relocated a bunch of Burning Bushes that the deer destroyed last year and I need to get some wolf or mountain lion urine and start spreading that around ASAP. I used the wolf urine last year, but got lazy after the rain and once again they ate all the Hostas. The Burning Bushes were planted on a Friday evening after work, and were bare twigs on Saturday morning...
I found this online a few weeks back.
This link is broken, either the page no longer exists or there is some other issue like a typo.
The one neighbor might think it's cruel, but you should see the bushes in her yard.
I hope all is well with eveyone and I'm already looking forward to next winter.
