Signs of the times

I passed through the small (and somewhat isolated) town of Rockford, WA recently and stopped for gas.  I was startled to see this:

To be fair there's still gas in the underground tanks, available by credit or debit card (neither of which I had with me that day).  Once that gas is gone, Rockford will be entirely without a gas station, and the nearest places people can buy gas is about twelve miles in either direction.

Signs of the times.

  1. Sign of the times, indeed. And a sad one.

    We try and keep at least ten gallons of gas on the place at all times, which we keep rotated and freshened. I wish it were a hundred.
