    It MIGHT not be too bad, Diz...the winds are gonna be coming outta the west and the tank is close to the garage on the east side. Gotta 4x8 slab of 3/4" plywood I'm gonna lean up against it. Might help a bit. 🙏

    Having it closer to the building is great. Plywood on the outside,
    couple tarps over it all and the tank will be fine. You got no worries...Name:  cold-1.jpg

    You all are probably correct about the tarps but I believe if the LP Tank was wrapped in insulation first, then wrapped in a tarp and covered with another tarp would be much better. Never use heat tape or something similar to keep the tank warm as they will never shut off due to the severe cold and will overheat and melt or catch on fire. Previous owners of my' home in West Virginia wrapped the water pipes running under the porch floor to the laundry room with heat tape and it got so cold, the heat tape couldn't shut off and nearly set the house on fire.

    I have a fuel oil tank and when it was just filled I had them put deicer in it. Also put the goodies in both cars in the last couple days. Come on March! Or a great nor'easter.

    look at the bright side, no mosquitoes, snakes, yellow jackets, ticks or chiggers! having said that, I can deal with them pretty darn well compared to the bad cold. hope you all keep warm and all of that, vehicles remain in good working order as well as water lines and heat in homes. come on spring!
