I have to admit that I didn’t get up early to look for deals; my perusal of the newspaper Thursday night didn’t show me anything worth a 5:30 a.m. wakeup call, I guess. But I did amble on down to Home Depot at about 11:30 a.m. to pick up a $99 propane-fueled patio heater — that’s the least-expensive 40,000-BTU model I’ve ever seen. The drive down Skillman was pretty easy since there was minimal traffic, but the parking lot at Home Depot was at least half-filled. And there were plenty of people there to help out, so I was in and out of the store in probably 10 minutes. Guess I broke the rule of buying a door-buster and didn’t linger looking for something else.
