RE: What Are You Paying For Heating Oil?

I have two gas furnaces, but they cost too damn much to run. When it's cold (and yes it does get cold sometimes in Florida) I keep my three fireplaces blazing. All year I'm on the lookout for people giving away wood, so I stay warm for free.

I went in a Wal-Mart in Montgomery County Maryland about a year ago and I couldn't believe how ratty it was compared to the ones here in Florida. It was dirty, the shelves were bare, overall nasty. Here at least they're clean and usually have what you're looking for. Big difference.
