We have a 200 gallon fuel oil tank in the basement. The fuel oil man just delivered 145 gallons of fuel oil. ($2.30 a gallon, I'll let you do the math).

Sad thing is, the furnace doesn't heat the whole house, it heats the downstairs (partially) and supplies our hot water. We have electric baseboard radiators in each of the upstairs rooms, for which we pay Central Maine Power. We also heat a portion of the downstairs with wood (fireplace in the study) and propane (gas burning stove in the living room), for which we pay AmeriGas.

Keeping us warm with -15 windchill is not an inexpensive proposition, but it's a small price to pay for living in Maine.
