Shutting down the ole Warm Morning #400 for the year here in the mountains of Virginia. Spent $660 on 5 1/4 tons of Kentucky lump and around $50 in fuel. Theres no way i could have heated this old 3000 sq ft home cheaper. Hope all the Black Diamond burners have a wonderful Summer.

Anthracite has been $200 delivered for the past few years here. $160 if you pick it up yourself.

I was letting the stove burn out last week, but the mason showed up to re-top the chimney that serves the oil burner. So, I toted in a little more coal to keep going for another week. It's supposed to shoot up to almost 80 degrees here Wednesday; hopefully what's in the stove will burn out by then.
