Just wanted to know if you were from Onondaga too :)

Passed by your Peru many times on my way up the Northway. Used to make the trip to Montreal from Philly every other week.

Hi Neighbor!! How's things in Elba? Probably pretty much like in Byron. Don't you love this time of the year when the farmers mess up all the roads with mud/rocks & you have to ride through it a couple times a day? Oh well! It's worth it I guess - to live in the country I mean............

Hello folks, my name's John. I'm from Otter Lake, about 40 miles north of Utica. I'm not a coal burner yet, but visited a friend who had a stoker furnace that really impressed me. I've been burning wood for years, but the idea of not having the work of stacking and hauling wood, cresote, etc. makes me smile. I'm away all day, so being able to fill the hopper and have it stoke itself especially interests me. I've been looking at the Keystoker line of warm air furnaces, and have nearly decided to buy one for next winter. In the meantime, I've got about 8 cords of wood to use up! Anybody from the Utica area, what's coal going for these days?

West Eaton. Used Bushes' stimulus $ to buy an Alaska Channing III for last winter. (Nearly broke even with that in one heating season) Then with less than a months experience with coal found a nice little 1950's stove on Craigslist for the shop. This year the little lady wanted that old stove in the kitchen and I have to admit, it has been sooooo nice that it's okay that the shop is on the transplant waiting list again.

I'm also told they are Amish and don't deliver although having lived in Amish country I know most will contract delivery out if the business is good enough. Don't know if that is closer to West Winfield than Madison. I pass through all of them on my way to visit my family in CNY so I would think I should :oops:

Sam Miller was the local Amish coal suppler, he moved up here from Delaware a few years back but the winters up on the hill were to harsh for him so this summer he moved back south to Kentucky, a Menonite bought his place and is also selling coal but not as cheap as Sam did, I got a ton of rice on 11/ 23 / 09 and it was 250.00 a ton, I thought it would be cheaper this year because the price of diesel fuel for trucking is $2.00 a gal cheaper then last year

Was that bulk rice or bagged? Another coal user in Duanesburg told me about Sam Miller but not exactly where he was located. I can understand why he moved back. Winters can be pretty nasty around here if you are not used to them. Weather in Delaware is much milder than upstate NY but Kentucky can get cold too. I worked in northern Delaware for a few years and winters were not as cold but the wind off the bay was as bad as it is in Buffalo coming off of Lake Erie. Brrrrr.
