With more cold weather ahead and some delays in delivery,
homeowners should check proprane levels
As the second cold snap this year hit north Georgia this week, customers seeking to fill their propane tanks were faced with higher prices and a cap on how much they could buy from many distributors.
Calls to area propane suppliers Friday morning showed prices ranging from $2.89 to $3.59 per gallon and one propane company representative said prices went “up 10 times in one week”.
None of the six companies contacted Friday morning were taking new customers in an effort to ensure they could supply existing clients. Many were rationing deliveries to 100 or 150 gallons, down from a standard minimum delivery of 250 gallons, to make sure everyone who calls could get enough fuel to last through the bitter cold.

We don’t know how to handle the cold here in Pickens County - and why should we? We’re southerners.
I realize not everyone reading this is from the south, but like many of you I’ve always called Georgia home.
Busted pipes, water damage spell doom
Global Restoration pumped more than 1,500 gallons of water from this commercial building after frigid weather froze the sprinkler system. Soaked ceiling tiles had to be removed as part of the restoration.
