Just for grins i did a CL search and found quite a few listings for $8 / bag (are the bags 40 or 50lbs?) and even a listing for a 1/2 ton for $200.
Could be a money maker next year....fill the garage with skids of pellets, wait until the late Feb panic and put them up for sale!!
If I can't get the car in the garage, I may as well put something that can generate money in there instead of all the stuff waiting for that never to happen yard sale.
