Old-fashioned heat makes a comeback

By Christian Jennings - bio | email

ALBANY,  GA (WALB) –  Firewood sales are up drastically as a result of the bitter cold temperatures.

Kevin Rogers started selling firewood for six years ago. He says the past three weeks have been his busiest ever.

He has a waiting list for the first time... and it's still growing.

Rogers delivered firewood to 30 customers Tuesday. "We've had more extended cold weather this year and we've sold more wood this year already then we did in the past two years cumulative."

 The wood is $65.00 a truck load. Rogers says most customers are purchasing wood for their fireplaces, but bon fires are also popular during the bone-chilling nights.

He expects business to continue to increase as we remain in a deep freeze.
