I set up an account with Family Fare, our local grocery store. They will do your shopping and bag the groceries for five bucks a trip.
The process was the usual fire-drill. I filled the virtual cart. Then I tried to register. I lost the contents of the cart. I had to call customer support. Twenty-five minutes later I had a human on the line.
I refilled my cart. It told me to select when I was coming to pick up the groceries. The soonest dates available were April 19-through-April 22. Obviously they are struggling to find workers to keep up with demand.
So much for serving salmon to my mom on Friday.
The good news is that I was able to get out to the lease and cut some more ash. I am getting about 3/4 of a face cord per load and I am not killing myself. Tomorrow is supposed to be cooler temperatures. Maybe I can get an entire face-cord into the back of the truck. To provide a sense of equivalency, a face-cord of well dried ash wood has about as many BTUs as fifty gallons of #2 heating oil.
