I asked The Soapbox Collector to take this picture to show you that a lot of the rocks in this region are coal. People still burn these rocks in special stoves to heat their houses (although the B&B has oil heat and radiators, like most people here). Power plants burn them to release energy that they turn into electricity. Mining, transporting, and burning the coal is a pretty dirty way to get energy compared to some of the ways we have available now, but a long time ago it was the best way people had to industrialize things quickly. (Kiki's saying something about whether that was necessary, but I'll ask her about it later. I know the family who runs the B&B likes the wind farm up on the ridge top better than the coal furnaces, though.) Posted by Hello
