July Pellet Delivery

You have all heard of Christmas in July, but have you heard of Pellets in July?  Probably not.  This is the time of year we stock up on the pellets that we burn in the two stoves we have to heat our house in the winter.   Pellets or Wood - Another Source of Heat

The hard part is estimating how many we will need.  If the winter is mild, we don't use as many as when the winter is harsh.  This year we ordered five tons.  We have a ton or so left over from last year. 

This morning bright and early this truck pulled up to our driveway to deliver the bags of pellets.


He put a pallet of pellets on the forklift and brought them in one ton at a time. 


Notice all the leftover garage sale stuff still sitting on the driveway.  Time to get that cleaned up.  It looks like the whole load is going to tip over, but it didn't.

He maneuvered around and stacked them in the garage.

Hopefully this will be enough to keep us toasty warm all winter, even though it is hard to imagine being cold.  The last few days have been beastly hot and a little cooler weather will be welcome.
