Winter is Expensive
There are so many expensive things about winter compared to summer. For starters, we needed propane to heat our house. We ended up ordering 750 gallons at $1.66 per gallon. That works out to be $1245. We are also paying $40 a time for snow removal. We now live in the country and aside from buying a plow truck, we don't have any options for doing snow removal ourselves. It just keeps on snowing. Twice last week and again the end of this week. We also received a notice that they would like to reappraise our property for tax purposes. An increase in our taxes is the last thing that we need. I know that it really does even out as far as expenses go but it just seems like we're getting hit right now. I need to be thankful that in the summer we won't have a water or gas bill.
