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!
4 degrees here. Brrrrr! I hope this is the last single digit temperature we see until next winter! Schlepped 3/4 ton from the coal pile to the covered bin under the deck, yesterday. Dance, little blue ladies,...dance!
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!
