I do, all the time.  I use that stove 150+ times a year, so it needs constant maintenance.  I should have done it before the picture, though, so point taken! : )

just raggin a little.  i want a wood stove in a bad way as I grew up with one and nothing is better for a snowy day than a fire crackling.

Looking at some of the latest model runs it looks as if they are coming in a touch colder and snowier/icier especially north and west of the cities. Northern Balt county and Carrol might struggle to even break freezing until early Friday morning.

About to drive back from Gaithersburg to Germantown. Got pictures will report on road conditions.

Look forward to reading -- I'm thinking of heading out to hit up Chick Fil A for the just released peppermint choc chip shake.

Mod small flake snow and about 2"

Best November snow I can remember since ahem Nov. 1978 and ahem Nov. 1995.  (I wasn't here in 1989 but I hear 1990 was kinda blah).

Don't do it. 

 

I'll share pictures in just a moment.

 

But there are cars that are stuck on hills. Seriously, saw a car spin out and slide down a hill into another car near Blunt Road.

Sleet line keeps oscillating and washing out near DC.

Further west, it's been struggling to make northward progress in Fauquier county.

Road report from Gaithersburg to Germantown driving on Frederick Rd and other roads. Main roads are fine but that's IT. Side roads, even semi-main roads, are TERRIBLE. I saw multiple cars spinning out, one car slid down a hill into another car, it's bad out there. Pictures for reference:
