    Default Butane gas bottles

    god, it's 9 years on the 22nd Feb. since our sml eathquakes.

    Back then we bought a sml butane gas cooker (no power for a wee while, lol) and a supply of the sml canisters.

    No useby date to be seen, Dr Google hopeless, so perhaps one should have come here first.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    As long as the canisters have not been damaged or rusted they will be just fine to use. The butane gas does not go off over time.

    Thanks CliveM, might as well keep till after the 10th anniversay next year.

    Bit of a right-up in thie morning's The Press about gas heater, so I would check this out.

    Quite a good experience then, under the circumstances.

    TV are doing another showing of the disaster.

    piroska, would have used the open fire place, but, when you lose the chimney.

    We had workers in the area of the fallen summerhill stones, but we both had a devil's own time trying to get up off the tossing floor, to run out and see how the three men were coping. They saw a couple of other chimneys' opposite our place "tumble down".

    We told them to get on home to see how things were at their places', never saw them again to finish off their work, rofl.

    ps. gas bottles far easier than having to re-light a fire every time tho.

    People who have not experienced an earthquake or series of tremors have no accurate idea what it's like and their imagination isn't really any help.
    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    zpwerty, I was born and lived in Hawkes Bay for 30 years, it was known for earthquakes, especially the Napier one.

    Been trying to find info from Papers Past about the Napier one, especially the suppliers' of food supplies to the people under canvas at several locations.

    Grandfather and father owned a bakery and we were told they supplied bread, etc to the displaced folk.
