Well, that all depends on how you define TON........ :D

The teenage girl at my coal supplier thought a TON was a PALLET of 2,500 lbs.! :lol:

The problem is they charge you for 2,500 & you only get a ton ..... the guys in the back know what a ton is. :lol: That's what happened when my ol' man bought coal there. :roll:

I am still on my second pallet. 2500 lbs per pallet, when the snow melts I will bring the rest of it up. Been burning hard but the Keystoker 90 is an efficent machine. Heating 2200 sq ft and then open the door and heat the one car garage every evening, my man cave.

Well, I was about to go on a date with what I thought was a lovely lady,( internet stuff ) but then she asked me if I have a problem with her not being on the slim side, so she metioned that she weighs a ton, I emailed her back, asking her whether she meant a metric ton or an english ton, never heard from her again !

Is this due to the weather or have you done anything different this year such as put a baro on? Just wondering. Lisa
