On a pellet forum, the question was, "I have been meaning to start this thread to get an idea what folks burned this year versus last year and how many pellets you may have left over for next year."
My answer, which got several "likes" and laughter emoji's:
I know I burned 6+ tons last winter. Let's see, this winter: I started with 5.3 tons. I purchased 5+6+27+15 and a few others probably - let's call it a 1.2 of individual bags. Then I bought 11 tons this spring. I currently have 12.7 tons. So 5.3+1.2+11 = 17.5. Subtract 12.7 and I get (hold on, I have to grab a cat because I ran out of fingers and toes, just gotta remember they only have 4 to a pad ) - umm 4.8 tons used so far this season. (Math is hard for this old brain )
Then someone pointed out that cats have 5 on their front paws if you count the dewclaws. Then I remembered that Fuzzy has extra toes, so I would be in trouble if I grabbed him first.
Probably had to be there, but a few people got a smile from my answer
