Today I had to drive a couple of towns away to buy pellets. Both stores in my town (Walmart and Aubuchon's) that sell them are out for the season. Aubuchon's may or may not get more, but for now they're out, and their requests for more are not being filled. They sell the good Energex pellets, and they said the Energex plant had a problem with their production line which cut production for a while. I don't know if this is true. So I loaded my Toyota Corolla with 24 bags (960 lbs) of Energex at an Aubuchon's in the other town !! I hope this, plus the little bit I have here, will get me through the end of the heating season here in northern New York State. Being new to pellet burning, I hadn't expected the stores to run out in mid-March. I'll have to keep that in mind for next year.... Any comments ?
