I finished out January of 2017 with the consumption of only about 1,600 lbs. of coal. Last year needed about 1,800 lbs., and two years ago it took about 2,200 lbs. of coal to get us through January. Huge differences in average daily temperatures.

Less coal usage here too. Early January I had thought about getting an extra ton in case I ran out in March and it may be scarce at that time. But with the low coal usage in Jan and mild 10 day forecast coming up that won't be necessary.
