Still burning coal in northwest NJ! Looks like I might have to buy more coal again....Oh I forgot that global warming is heating everything up...This is April isn't it? In the 1980's the environmentalist wackos were predicting global cooling...maybe they were right!
Obviously I have been working too hard lately. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Still burning here in Central Maryland. I'll be getting a pickup load of coal this weekend. Since October 28, 2006 I've burned 5.25 tons for heat and domestic hot water.

I shut my boiler down 2 weeks ago during the warm spell. I thought the cold was done. Now, I have been running the wheels off my little Harmon Mark II that I have in my basement. So much so that I have cracked and/or just flat broke 4 firebricks in it in the last 2 weeks !!!

I'd like to pick up loose coal this summer for next year, bagged is much more expensive. I'll most likely have to buy 10 more bags this week.
