firewood question

How much firewood do you go through during the winter?

I am new to having a fireplace and I see advertisements for a price per cord. How much is a cord and how many cords per season?

Thanks in advance...

It's been a while since I heated with wood...let's see if I can remember this....there are 3 cords to a rank?  That doesn't sound right (what it's called)....but there are 3 cords in a bigger "package" and you can get the bigger package cheaper.  We used to go through 6 cords (or 2 of the big packages) in a Michigan winter as our only source of heat in a little house.  With that being said, a cord filled up a pick up truck bed, so the other will need to be delivered.  As far as price, oh man that was so long ago, I think we paid just under $200 for a rank.  Sorry if I am only confusing you.

I just went to ask.com and typed in "how many cords of wood in a rank?" and all kinds of good info came up.  But I think I might have it backwards, meaning there are 3 ranks in a cord???  I'm not helping am I?  But maybe ask.com can help. I LOVE LOVE LOVE that seach engine.
