Those that buy coal in 90 degree weather and keep it covered well wont be coming here to complain about wet coal this winter :yes:

I might still get more but I have enough for next winter already, bought in April I think. :D

The best time to get coal is when it's hot outside! If you wait til it gets cold, you might be waiting a little longer than you would like.

Im not sure who you talked to from Lehigh, but we try to run a clean consistent product all year around. We do not run slower in the summer months.
