    but I didn't keep an exact count.

    I started burning @ night when cool in late September. Near record cold in December (for this area) and a cold January. I am at about 180 bags or 3.7 tons. Still much less exspensive than electricity using heat pump and much warmer.

    About 1 ton in total since late December, 54 bags to be exact. Have about 2/3rds of a ton remaining, at least half of that will go toward next season's stash.

    Just cracked into bag # 197 today, it was 20* out when I got up so the 3 bags I have left aren't going to cut it. Guess I will be picking up some more soon!
