46 years old here. I do remember burning coal as I grew up. Both Sets of grandparents cooked from coal stoves as well as heated with coal furnaces. As I got older I was lucky enough to get to take ash cans out to the curb. Both Grandfathers and great grandfathers also mined coal. Over 90 years of miners on my moms side of the family.

Millworker;
Less and less young people are growing up with coal stoves in the home so maybe they don't even consider it an option when considering how to heat their homes


I grew up burning wood. That's why I burn coal in my own home. Nuff said! :out:

I turned 58 last month, getting old isn't too bad as long as you are warm enough while doing it. :)
