linklings, propane edition

So apparently if you have a propane tank to heat your water, you need someone to come fill it AFTER it’s been unlocked.  Having never dealt with propane before, I was a bit – to put it generously – confused about how it works.  Fortunately, after three days without hot water we finally got it sorted out and now have no excuse for smelling bad.  I put Little Pumpkin in a bath today and she positively babbled from excitement at being clean.

Having moved twice this year, I’ll recommend you never attempt it.  I think it worked out well enough, but the stress of packing and unpacking twice in six months is significant.  Add on Christmas – albeit a low-key one – and it’s a hectic time for us.  At least I don’t have to worry about snow this year.

  • Your propane tank was locked? This wasn't a rental, right? That's odd and maybe it's just a Florida thing. But we have had propane for years and no locks on any of the tanks. We would just call the company and they would send someone out to fill it and leave a bill taped to the door.
