    I wish it was canning season here although I have done meat when it was on sale any time of the year.

  15. If you were going to buy a pressure cooker to send to a friend overseas, where would you get it? I am thinking Walmart.

    Also, is it true, that Oklahoma ran out of propane last week? I heard that one on the fox news show.

    1. Hey There Harry,

      Your best bet would be through Walmart. Now if you're sending to a military base, possibly the BX??

      Our Governor issued a state of emergency due to the dwindling supply of propane last week. Frigid temperatures in OKC caused a low run on propane freezing propane lines started which in turn restricting the amount of gas being pushed through the lines. I believe a total of 15 states had the same problems and also issued a state of emergency.
