    I received an e-mail from Robbie at GT today. They are shipping pellets to 4 Central Maine Lowes on 6/22. It surprised me they were shipping this early. Can't wait to see what the price will be!

    GT has a link now where you can follow the shipment. I plan on checking the prices next Friday and will post it here. I like them a lot. A little ashy, but with a Harman it's not an issue. I bought them last year for $177/ton with a veterans discount before Lowe's raised the price.

    I'll be back next weekend, going boating in Houma LA. Keep me posted, bought them last year at this time for $197 ton.

    Epping and Concord NH will get some on the 22nd also. They seem to be a month early this year.

    It's a link to a spreadsheet that they update daily. The e-mail I received that listed the shipping date and destination also had a shipping code. Without the codes, the spreadsheet is useless. I can forward the e-mail to you if you like.

    I also got an email and it listed 6 stores. Maybe because my zip code is a little closer to some of the southern Maine stores than yours. Keep us posted! I may pick up some if I can get them for $177/ton again. I already have over 4 tons for the upcoming season (probably more than enough for this year) but more is never a bad thing!

    With gas prices down and a favorable May for new housing starts, we can only hope! Here is a quote from the new housing starts in May, "American builders broke new ground on more single-family homes in May and requested more permits to build homes and apartments than they have in the past three and a half years.

    but, on the flipside of this, the last few years have been the WORST housing market since they started keeping records in the early 50's.....so, Im not sure what that really means? Is it a little better than the worst market we have seen in 3 generations? Not saying much.

    Just called the Seabrook, NH Lowes and the person I spoke to said the price will be $5.49 a bag. NO THANKS!

    Lousyweather looks like you hit it with the "flipside".

    On my original post I said "we can only hope". I should have known better. "Hope and Change" hasn't worked for the past 4 years. Hopefully the Lowe's will sit on these pellets for a while and then lower prices. I wont be interested until they come down to around $4 a bag.

    Count- even a broken watch is correct twice a day!

    IMHO, NO way you will see $4/bag pellets this season. Costs are just too high.

    All this talk of Pellets...... Lookin at getting 1.5 ton of Rocky Mountains delivered for $225 ($3 a bag). There not a great pellet (from whats been said here/for a Softwood,t thats surprising?)

    Hoping some Greene Team Greene Golds come closer to me this year. I got 5 bags from a forum member last season. They were a pretty good pellet.
