Hi th3006, Just for the record are you sure and certain that you don't miss the smell of woodsmoke on that first cool crisp day of fall when the leaves are beginning to turn and a slight breeze is stirring? Of course ,we all understand what is involved getting to the woodsmoke stage but still.............. Mike

It sure would be nice to continue seeing the oil drop! If coal dropped I would be stoked but then again I don't mind paying the price(reasonably) knowing full well the product was produced down the road and not over that big blue pond. Havent called yet but Im still betting the local yard still has a list price of 230 a ton delivered bulk. Coal was my heating bill hero last winter so I have no fears in ordering a good load this summer. :rambo:

Having a really hard time find a decent bulk price here near Albany, NY. I need rice and I want about 10 tons. Also need basement chute delivery. Any suggestions? Does anyone know and PA breakers who deliver to NY? Best price I have found is $300 a ton delivered from Cornwall. Seems like I should be able to do better. I can get bagged for the same price locally but I don't want to have to move it all into my basement.

Not in a truck capable of basement delivery...bulk TT loads in a dump trailer are the norm.

$300 per ton in the cellar is still pretty cheap heat with minimal aggravation.

We just received 5 tons of delivered Harmony pea today from Bosler Brothers Supply in Middlefield, OH, and put it into our new outside coal bin (which is replacing super sacks to free up garage space so I can go back to parking my car in the garage). $273 per ton (including delivery, but before sales tax). We had to pay a premium of $20 per ton more than those more local to Middlefield, OH for delivery due to the distance that Bob Bosler had to travel to reach our house.

However, even with the premium for delivery it ended up that had we gone with delivered Blaschak pea from Coalway in Apple Creek, OH that option would have cost us $270 per ton before sales tax, so for an upcharge of only $3 per ton we get to give UAE Harmony a go this winter. Since we still have roughly 2.25 tons of Blaschak pea remaining in supersacks, this will give us an opportunity to compare Harmony directly to Blaschak and decide which we like best.

I have a fireplace now, if I want that pleasure I'll light it once and let it go out. LOL Actually there is two, due to construction delays mostly from the weather last year and the flood we were a few weeks behind getting the heating installed last year. It was the first and hopefully last time we used wood for heat. It was nice to have because it is heat but what a PITA.

I can get all the wood smoke I need from my neighbors. Every morning I drive through their cloud.

Speaking of smoke clouds, my neighbors found out that I'm going to burn coal this winter when they watched the truck drop 5 tons into my new outside bin. One of them came over and said "We thought you gave up on coal after telling us more than a year ago that you would be switching to it." When I replied that not only did I burn coal all this past winter, but I'm still burning it 24/7 to heat our hot water, I was met with a blank stare. Then came the reply that there was no billowing smoke and stink, so I had to be kidding.

With my coal tucked away in the garage in supersacks, the neighbors never had a clue (and apparently still don't) regarding my past and present coal burning (even though I told them). I'm certain that they are circling the wagons now though in anticipation of billowing smoke, soot, and stink this winter. In Ohio, its hard for anyone to fathom the difference between anthracite and bituminous, even if they are old enough to harken back to the era when nearly everyone burned coal (as most of my neighbors are). Two of my three nearest neighbors grew up in coal burning homes. One of them in the UK (he was a child in the UK durring the WWII era, and he tried in vain to explain something to me about his childhood memories of a boiler that sits behind or adjacent to and is somehow built into a coal buring fireplace. He said they were quite common back then in the UK.). It was OK for them back then, but apparently it's not quite as OK now that I'm doing it in this modern era wherein everyone knows better.

How about a picture of this outside bin for the "Coal Bin" thread?

Good idea. It's there now. Not quite finished yet, and I need some fast pointers and suggestions for a roof.

I just bought 2 tons from Hendricks in Hilltown for $230/ton bulk, nut, picked-up. Coal is from Tamaqua, I believe. The current oil price is $2.969/gal, I just had to order some :mad2:

They went out of business?
