We only have enough coal for about 400 years so all you freaks who wring their hands a pee yourself when the wind changes, just relax! I've been burning for 43 years now, and have always gotten TT loads of bulk...some 2300 tons as I recall. The quality is excellent, the service is excellent, the supple is excellent, so stop shaving your legs and Man-UP. How much petro do you think we have left? You should be more worried about that than coal.
Northern Maine has the best of all WORLDS with Center Farms trucking south with Maine Products, and back home with coal and other freight. Coal is 280 a ton that far from the coal fields.....smarten up, this is a heck of a deal. You need to think BIGGER where there is not an Center Farms operation. Someone with a large 'sack' needs to be the go-to guy. The one pick-up guy needs to be 500 pick-ups.
I was in Brattleboro , VT this week and BULK there is $340. Pretty common around here.
Anthracite: It's what's for winter.
Back in the 80's when coal manufactures were falling like the leaves in fall, things were not good, AND now, thanks to a few bright folks the lost 'secret of coal' has made a 'small army of loyalists' open the history books and see that we nearly lost a true natural resource. After WW2 ended, things went berserk for many years and yes, I'm one of those 'boomer generation' guys. Please don't lose that sense of loyalty from our country , despite this past weeks reversal of logic.
When is the last time your lifestyle, or your life been threaten by a Coal person from Pennsylvania? Some others say daily that their mission in life is to kill all the christian world......I really don't like that alternative, nor should you.
Try to get a bigger picture, not just 3.25 tons you might need yearly. It really is a BIG world out there.
It's Veterans Day, show some respect for the hundreds of thousands who can't even enter this discussion, but would do it all over again, just so we can have the privilege to do so.
