I filled up yesterday @ $2.48 a gallon. Cost me $51.00 .

 

Is that all? That's cheap.

 

 

 

US$2.48 = AUS$3.28 (http://www.xe.com/ucc/)

 

3.78 litres = 1 US gallon.

 

$3.28 / 3.78 litres = 86.77 AUS cents per litre.

 

 

 

We're paying $1.40 a litre here. So......

 

$1.40 x 3.78 litres = $5.292

 

AUS$5.292 = US$4.00575 per US gallon.

 

 

You - US$2.48 per gallon. Me- US$4 per gallon.

 

 

 

No wonder we drink.

Here we are paying $1.50 / litre for Optimax. 10 cents less for regular unleaded. But I like the hi density hi RON petrol.

Well, it was bad I will admit. I got up Saturday morning and looked out the back door at the lake and saw it "white capping". We (We = Amber and I, and her daughter Gabby) then all loaded up taking only the necessities. I grabbed my dogs and put them in their kennel and put them in the back seat. Off we went, well so we thought any way. lol About 2 miles down the road a "FULL SIZE" tree was ripped completely out of the ground, roots and all laying across the middle of the road. So then I had to turn around and back track about 10 miles. I finally get into town (where amber lives) and my dogs were so scared and nervous, one of them had a massive diarrhea attack all of them selves. The worst part is we couldn't roll down the windows cause it was raining so bad and I had to drive about 20MPH all the way there cause the rain was coming down so bad. It stunk so bad, you cannot even fathom the smell. Well, we arrive at Ambers house and begin to unload everything. I had to stand out in the rain and wash their kennel out. There was shit all over the place. Plus they were both covered in shit. Then after I get there, we had to go back out in it as Amber's mom HAD TO HAVE her medication (it was a matter of life and death). So I drive to the local pharmacy and pick that up. On the way home, there were trees laying down every where. All of the traffic lights were out, so there was mass hysteria on the roads! I don't know what was worse, watching out for the other idiots driving or what the wind was blowing at you. I finally get back, then the power flickers on and off the rest of the day. I watched out the window as people backyard fences were uprooted and flying through the air. A tree fell and crushed Gabby's swing set (she was heartbroken). Finally at about 9:00 PM, it started to let up alittle, as it was just rainy. Woke up this morning, and it was like nothing had ever happened, aside from all the trees and limbs on the ground. Sunny and about 80 degrees outside. My mother told me they were without electricity all weekend, and it finally came back on here about 5:30AM this morning.

 

All in all, a unforgettable experience to say the least!

 

Good to be back,
