A costly winter? That's looking at it wrong. The oil barons will make billions this winter. The rich will get richer and richer. Who would complain about that?

Yep, I have 3200 as well and last summer when we had 34 days over a 105 degrees, my electric was $206 and $177 for the two months. I have six inch walls and roof so my insulation is thicker than most with 2 x4 truss. I have a two speed high efficiency Train System. I also have several sixty foot trees. Plan ahead.

What the liberal press and the 38 Soros media outlets don't want you to know and compare is going back to the last year of Jimmy Carter the pollsters also kept the race looking close until the last week and their shock of what was about to happen finally took over. If you go back to 2004 and the second Bush election, liberals were swooning on FOX, and most other networks, smirks were showing and bravada was present, but as the evening wore on and the libs figured out their take on the exit polls was disaster ridden and it became clear Bush was winning a second term. SUSAN ESTRICH's face almost hit the desk by Brit Hume as the realization hit her, just after preening around with confidence that the exit polls were right, but alas....they were wrong. There is a hidden tidal wave in this country that is going to hit in November 2012. All you have to do to be convenienced is watch how many liberals head for the door right after the first of the year.

This is why I had 2 wood stoves when I lived in Montana. If you gather the wood yourself it's essentially free. Good workout too! My gas bills were close to zero!

Yep, You planned ahead, yet you still expect the rest of the country to rebuild your homes year after year because you built in a hurricaine prone area. The next time you get a Cat4 or Cat5, just repeat your own words "I planned ahead...I don't need a clue".

Residents in Alaska city could get $9-a-gallon gas
By MARY PEMBERTON | AP 8 hrs ago



9 dollars a gal. makes green slime freaks happy!!...WILL WE GET A BARGAIN AT 5 DOLLARS ???
If HUSSEIN gets back,,WE WILL!!

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) The residents of Nome, Alaska, could be looking at a very costly winter:$9-a-gallon gasoline.

The coastal city of more than 3,500 residents that is known for the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race is iced-in, and a massive winter storm this month prevented a barge that usually carries fuel from getting to shore.

The most likely plan is to fly it in, but it would be costly and could be a logistical nightmare.

"It could be pretty outrageous, the prices," said Jeremy Nassuk, Nome airport fueler for Crowley Marine Services, Inc.

A gallon of gas was selling for $5.98 and jet fuel $6.77 a gallon on Wednesday. The next barge delivery wouldn't be until next June. In the meantime, flying fuel to the city could increase the cost per gallon by $3 to $4, officials said

Obama wants higher gas prices? Do the rest of the Democrats feel the same way? It certainly would explain why they continue to block domestic energy production in oil. It would also explain the bloated Lieberman-Warner bill, which would have imposed a heavy regulatory bureaucracy on the energy industry, along with rationing that would have both driven up prices and held down supply

OBAMA:

"I've cut your taxes."

Lovely. It's like a burglar bragging that he locked your front door on his way out. Or a burglar that steals thousands, takes away your oil, and gives you back $20.

Nutty libs won't like that, the cutting down of trees for wood. They don't like you to use oil. They don't like much. They want you to stand under the sun and collect rays with a solar baseball cap, not eat, not live, bla bla bla. You can tell the nutty libs are either filthy rich elitists like Obama or entitlement recipients who don't need to work hard to keep warm.

You can however dine on old racehorse meat.

This costly Winter is courtesy of the Democratic party and its eco-freak anti-oil, anti-engery, anti-profit Occupy Wall Street constituency.

APNewsBreak: GM willing to buy back Volts

NEW YORK (AP)-- General Motors will buy Chevrolet Volts back from any owner who is afraid the electric cars will catch fire, the company's CEO said Thursday.

In an exclusive interview with The Associated Press, CEO Dan Akerson insisted that the cars are safe, but said the company will purchase the Volts because it wants to keep customers happy. Three fires have broken out in Volts after side-impact crash tests done by the federal government.

Akerson said that if necessary, GM will recall the more than 6,000 Volts now on the road in the U.S. and repair them once the company and federal safety regulators figure out what caused the fires. Reprints

What does the AC run you in the summer?

I have some family down there and also in North Carolina. It's the summer cooling bills that they gripe about.

We put one in our basement seven years ago. It's been a lot more affective than I would have guessed. I get wood here and there over the course of the warm months and we haven't had to buy any yet. It hasn't eliminated our fuel usage, but it's cut it by well over half. The warm floors are nice, too.

The most I paid this past summer was $150 in a month and we keep changing the setting because my wife is cold and then shes hot and then shes cold etc.I should also say that we are retired and our house is not big-maybe 1000 sq.ft.What kills you down here is the home insurance bill which is way over anything in CT. because of the hurricane threat-anout $1000 a year.I*m from Hartford area-came down in 1993.

My uncle is in Bradenton. The house is about 1600 sq. feet and my aunt babysits my cousins children. I guess little ones don't like the heat...but they're paying a lot more than $150 a month.

After '04, their homeowners insurance more than doubled.

I lived in Sarasota back in the late seventies. I couldn't stand the heat, I couldn't work in the heat and hated being trapped inside to be comfortable. I only lasted about seven months before I came back here. My wife and I are planning to leave Ct. when we retire, but it won't be to Florida. It's a nice place to visit in the winter, but forget the rest of the year.
