Hi! I am a Duer who needs help.

My propane tank is almost empty and it is getting very cold in the mountains of New Mexico. I need a propane delivery in the worst way. I have tried every outlet in New Mexico for help but I have been denied because my social security check is $150 over the limit. New Mexico would rather I freeze instead of lending a helping hand. If you can help, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I have set up a gofundme account:

3. I lost my heat last winter

for about a week because I couldn't pay the propane bill. Thankfully I had electric heaters so I didn't get too cold but my water heater ran on propane so I didn't have hot water. I have never loved a slow cooker as much as I did then, I put water in it at night and used it to bathe the next day.

5. i wish you luck.

i live in Virginia but I met by wife in Albuquerque, i have family in Santa Fe. NM is my favorite state. I hope your situation will improve quickly. Nobody should be lacking basic necessities such as heat.

7. This is posted to the wrong forum.

No one is going to see this while it is in the "help me use DU" forum.

9. Glad to hear it, but still wrong forum.

A correct forum choice would have gotten her there quicker.

11. Absolutely!

Less-than-optimum solutions frequently get the job done.
