We Got Our Coal Delivery on Saturday

Modern and vintage hand fired coal stove are similar to a wood stove and in some cases can burn either. They need to be regulated and fed by hand usually every 12 to 24 hours depending on your usage. They require no power to operate making them ideal for rural settings with long power outages.

I think the wife and I have enough bulk coal (anthracite stove size) for 3 years. It is a good feeling to have over 13 tons stockpiled in the barn and not have to worry about keeping warm in the frigid western Massachusetts winters. This past winter we got over 120 inches of snow. The wife and I could not be happier with the Glenwood Base Heater No. 8. It is the best investment we have ever made. :D

I've been told that Gale Mining & Coal Co. In PA is selling quality anthracite for $210 / ton .

If I wouldn't be killing my savings in gas I would crap some of this but I think I'm stuck with blashak in NOVA. I still need to just buy a 20 ton dump truck load !

13 tons!!!! Wow. That is awesome.

I agree. It is such a great feeling having all that heating fuel on hand. You feel like you can weather any storm that mother nature can throw at you. :)

Not to mention the state of the economy and the "Coal Hater" in the White House.
