The propane is once again sealed within it's echoing metal caplet. All told, it's been 247 days since the furnace was started on September 19th. That seems about average and works out to about $10 per day, although I have a sneaking suspicion my locked-in price will shoot up this fall.
Now that the bathroom is nearing completion -- some three months after the wallpaper came down -- I'll be turning my growing renovation skills toward rebuilding and re-insulating the mudroom (or, "arctic entry" as it's known in the local realty listings). That should ease the heating bill a little.
