Gents and Ladys,
This is my first year burning coal. I love the way a boiler and coal heats the house ! Because none of my friends use coal it was a huge leap of faith to plumb in a boiler. ( thank God I had this forum and all of you helping )
One piece of the unknown to me was handling the coal from a large stock pile in very cold temps. I looked for a bit on nepa cr but just could not find a thread on this subject.
I had Leigh bring a tt load this summer and spot it between 3 old phone poles lined with a 20'x30' bill board tarp and then covered the pile with the same. So far every time I've needed coal this winter its been drama free. No freezing up or clumps. I have the pile on a hill, so it doesn't pool up water if we get a lot of rain or snow.
Just a little FYI , in case someone is thinking about a tt load next year.
