Amen and so mote it be! Simply amazing how well anthracite heats. Single digits outside and 70-72 inside. :D The colder it is the better it burns!

Feel a bit sorry for those who rely strictly on propane, especially here in the U.P. of Michigan.

Amen to that. Toasty warm and no outlandish propane, oil, or elec bills to pay. Both my son & daughter are slaves to heat pump systems that can't keep them warm in these frigid temps even w/ their emer. heat on. My son paid as much in elec. for the month of Nov. as I will have paid for my entire season of heat...and that includes all my hot water! Always say that the best/smartest thing I've done was switching to coal...next best thing was building my garage!

I got bored the other day and figured out what it would have cost me in oil...

This is just using btu's, not worry about efficiency differences, etc.

I was burning 80lb a day, roughly 1.2M btus. Total cost $8

To make that in oil I would have been paying around $36/ day at $4/gal.

Glad I dumped oil a few years back.

It's been in the negative numbers every morning this week and I wake to a house that is 70 and the wife and kid are sitting near the stove where it is 75*-80* and 15" of white stuff is coming tomorrow, people will loose power and I wish them well, but I have done my part to keep my family warm without the grid, praise god and pass the anthracite!

I'm grateful for coal. Without it, I would be making a propane payment instead of taking my daughter to Splash Lagoon for her 11th birthday... :)
