How much coal do you figure will you will have burned through come the end of February 2014?

I'm projecting 4 tons burned here from October 1st through February 28th. Close to 3/4 tons more than I burned over the same span for the 2012/13 heating season.

The difference in HDD's is going to be about 5,058 this season through February vs. 4422 last season over the same span. 636 more HDD's.

Will be a couple hundred pounds more than 5 tons. I had estimated 5-6 tons for the winter. Might be a bit more depending on how March and April behave. Good news is with the melt and some shoveling, I can take bulk deliveries again. :D :D :D

I've used about 2/3's of my bin..
Started with 6.1 tons this year..

The coal level was about 4 feet deep at the start of the season. I would say I'm at roughly 4-4.5 tons used so far. I used 5 ton total last year. I'm glad I started with over 6 ton this year!
