Average of previous two seasons (2011/2012, and 2012/2013) to this juncture = 8,623 lbs coal (for heat and DHW).
~1,870 more lbs. burned this season to date (and all of this additional coal would be for heat only).
WOW!, We sure are close in coal usage. I'd say within 2-1/2 five gallon pails is close.
