I'm close enough to three coal yards that I don't have to truck it in. I can load up my Subaru with 5 gallon buckets and buy it as I need it. The engine doesn't even get up to temp by the time I get to two of the yards. We do not have a coal bunker and I can back the car right up to the basement door. I do make sure that I have enough to last two weeks at a time which is usually about 12 buckets worth when it's really cold out.

It's great to live in the Southern Coal Region!!!

Living the dream! Everyone should be so lucky. Wish I could! I know of only 4 sources in Ohio within a roughly 80 mile radius of where I live, and the closest of these is ~25 miles out (and is now the only one who will deliver to me). The rest are all closer to hitting the perimeter of the 80 mile circle.

15 tons stacked in my basement should be good for a little bit. I don't like scrambling through the snow to load coal.

7.5 tons in the bin plus what was left over last year. Got the itch to fire the boiler. Maybe after this warm spell. ;)

It is less fussy in warm weather, and my dad prefers the silent operation of rice in the auger tube. I was able to get rice for the same cost as buck, so I switched. Also, I got significantly more fly ash in the smoke pipe with buck. Not sure if it was the coal itself, or the increased air velocity through the fire carrying the flash.
