Spare a cup of oil?

Spare a cup of oil?

Apparently one must actually buy oil in order to keep your oil furnace running. That’s today’s lesson as we ran out of hot water and wondered why.

See, when we moved in two months ago I do remember my landlord saying something about there being oil in the tank. But it was June; I wouldn’t need oil until October. And since we have natural gas for the stove and we had natural gas heat in the old place and we kept getting bills from gas utility…. well, it slipped my mind.

So now the oil tank is empty and it’s Friday night and nobody’s even open until Monday never mind scheduling a delivery. Dangit!

Sometimes I get so mad at myself.
