Winter in the Hill Country

Winter in the Hill Country

When people think of Texas, they usually think of the large cities, such as Dallas or Houston, both of which are a whole ‘nother animal from the Hill Country. People also think of West Texas, tumbleweed, and oil–also not the Hill Country. In fact, the Hill Country of Texas is a special place all its own, which is why it requires a special kind of company to manage heating requirements–Blue Sky Propane.

The Hill Country of Texas
The Texas Hill Country is a unique place, and we’re not saying that because we live here. We’re saying it because it’s true. The Texas Hill Country was settled by immigrants from Germany. The Germans and Swiss settled in the area because they said the Hill Country reminded them of their homes back in Europe, with rolling hills and great land for farming and raising dairy cows. This means that the Hill Country of Texas has a unique culture, apart from any other area of the state. We love the uniqueness of our culture here, which is a mixture of Mexican, Texican, German, and Americans from other parts of the United States.

Unlike the other areas of Texas, the Hill Country gets quite a bit of rain, especially in the spring. While it is hot here in the summer (like the rest of Texas), it does not get quite as hot here as it can in West Texas, where the temperature regularly soars over 100 degrees. Also, while the Texas Panhandle regularly gets snow and bitter temperatures in the winter, the Hill Country winters are not that bad.

That being said, the Hill Country can get really cold at night during the winter, as we have cold spells just like the rest of Texas does. When we do have a cold snap, sometimes, we get ice and snow. Because we live in Texas, and snow or ice is rare, when it does happen, sometimes people aren’t prepared for it. Trust us, you don’t want to be without heat during one of our Hill Country cold spells.

That’s why the Hill Country is so lucky to have us. With Smart Tank Technology by Blue Sky, we can ensure that your propane tank never runs out of fuel. We will make sure you have heat during the coldest spells of Hill Country weather. Not to mention, because we live here too, we take good care of our Hill Country neighbors. Why not give us a call today, and get propane from the Hill Country specialists?

Ahh… Football

We’re not sure if you know this, but here in Texas, football is not a game, it is a religious experience. And, here in the Hill Country of Texas, we take football seriously. Friday nights, there are high school football games. Saturday–there are college football games. Of course, on Sunday, there are pro football games to watch.

In Texas, football is a big deal. We cookout and have giant buffets so people can eat and watch all the football they want at the same time–because why wouldn’t you? For that reason, it is a good idea to make sure you have everything ready for the big feast, and that your gas appliances are ready to take on the job.

Which is where Blue Sky Propane comes in. We are able to make sure, through our Smart Tank technology, that you never run out of propane, no matter how many parties you throw during the grand season that is football. You can always check your propane levels via the app, so you’re always ready for the next big game. In addition, know that we are always available to you, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, should a problem come up with your tank –even if it is during the Red River Rivalry game.

The only question is… in a state as big as Texas, who do you root for? Yeah, that’s a problem for us, too. We have people who work for us or who are our customers that are die-hard Longhorn fans. We also have people in our circle who yell “Gig ‘em Aggies” at every opportunity–although we pretend we don’t know them when that happens. There are also some crazy Horned Frogs fans that live in the Hill Country, and a Baylor Bear or two–Waco is just down the road, after all. There’s even a guy we know who loves Texas Tech, and a Sooners fan who married a Longhorns fan–and they’re still married. Crazy, right?

Whichever team you root for, all of us here at Blue Sky Propane will make sure your tank is always ready to handle however many people are at your house for the big game–as well as the victory celebration or defeat commiseration when the game is over. That’s what friends are for, right? Unless you’re an LSU fan–then we just aren’t sure what to do with you–we’re kidding of course. Mostly.


With Smart Tank Technology by Blue Sky, never run out of propane. The Blue Sky Guarantee.
At Blue Sky Propane, we know you have a lot to worry about – meetings, family activities, the in-laws coming to visit, and more.

We believe whether or not your propane tank is full shouldn’t be on the list. That’s why we offer the Smart Tank Technology by Blue Sky. This revolutionary technology automatically monitors the level of your existing propane tank and alerts us when it’s time to refill. No more checking the tank. No more calling in orders. No more awkward conversations about why the tank ran out.

The Beauty of Smart Tank Technology

Have you ever gone into the kitchen in the middle of the night to get your favorite flavor of Blue Bell Ice Cream (we’re partial to Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough) only to find a few meager spoonsful are left? Very disappointing. What if your refrigerator could not only sense when you were getting low on Blue Bell, but could automatically refill it, so that you could have Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough whenever you wanted it? That would be amazing–although it might be a little difficult on your waistline, we get that.

While we can’t promise you unlimited Blue Bell here at Blue Sky Propane, we can offer Smart Tank Technology. With Smart Tank Technology, you never have to run out of the propane you need to heat your house, cook your food or have hot water.

What is Smart Tank Technology?

Smart Tank Technology is an innovative way that we monitor your propane levels, because let’s face it, no one wants to run out of propane, especially during the times you need it most. We know that our falls and winters are milder in the Texas Hill Country than in other parts of the country, no one likes being cold, and we have stretches of time in Texas when the cold wind is blowing, and houses get downright chilly. With Smart Tank Technology, your propane tank never runs out of fuel.

How Does It Work?

We make YOUR tank a Smart Tank by placing a cellular device on your tanks that sends us (and you) constant updates about your propane tank level through cloud technology. You can get a tank level reading through our exclusive app,– pretty much anywhere you are. When your tank level reaches a pre-determined fill level, our software will generate a delivery ticket and we will fill you up. No more guessing about when your tank might need a refill. No more worries about running out of fuel in the dead of winter.

We’re pretty excited about our technology, and we know you will be too, because it eliminates the concerns about running out of fuel and waiting days for a service call in a cold house. This technology is truly cutting edge, and who doesn’t like cutting edge technology?
