I keep checking the clock and date on the computer and it isn't Thursday night yet. Not fair!
I've paid for my fire insurance.
My agent has e-mailed a local propane company manager (cc'ing me) and asked for a quote for tank installation and service for the property "ASAP" - also asking if there were any customer discounts for me as a referral of hers (due to her long-term status as a customer). How cool is THAT??!?! Also - get this! - the company offers a "Smart Service" monitoring system which provides for automatic tank level monitoring, and will CALL the company when it needs to be refilled! It runs on solar power, attached to an in-home monitor tied into the phone line to make the calls, and which displays its status for the customer to read as well. Plus it has a thermometer for the inside house temperature so there's something else useful to see on its display. The inside monitor does use a battery. Now that's a handy system. I'm sure I could survive with a basic "Go outside and read the tank level" type thing, but I still think the "Smart Service" system is nifty.
So I'm not just nattering into the ether here, could some folks offer me opinions about fencing? Should I go metal or wood? Wood would be pretty, but blocks sight. That might not be bad, though. I dunno. Then there's chain link, which is UGLY. It will last for a really long time, though, and be secure. How about those aluminum panels of upright posts? (With hardware cloth across the bottom 2 feet, of course.) A gate that swings out, or a gate that rolls in a track parallel to the fence?
Hmmm. Still only Tuesday night. <*tapping toes*>
