I just found a very fine supplier in the mid-section of the Lower Peninsula of Michigan (KW Feeds, Clare, MI) who had bagged Blaschak nut coal for $367 including tax for a 2400# skid. That's almost $90 cheaper than what I was able to get from my supplier in the Upper Peninsula. So I bought three skids and took one with me to the U.P. I'll just take one on subsequent trips. He did say that as of Sept the price was going up $13 to $380 per 2400# skid. I'm hoarding, yes. I have 9 2400# skids in my backyard (20 acres!). I also have 10 chords of split and stacked wood, so that I can alternate wood/coal in my furnace.
