    Some reports are saying 55* :) Turning mine off in the morning and giving it the full TSA-level cleaning.

    Send us some pictures after the TSA treatment, blurring out the sensitive parts, of course.

    Already told (well, actually, asked nicely) the wife to shut the stove down at 1pm tomorrow, cleaning when I get home at 3.

    57 here in Michigan today. House was 74. Furnace was on low all day. I just shut it down as its supposed to be around 58-60 outside until 4 AM. I'll light it back off in the morning. May as well dump the ash pan again even though I just did it Saturday. Going to be back in the teens this weekend.

    Enjoy the warm air when it gets to New England.

    Today is supposed to have a high of 47 degrees, less than a week ago it was -27 degrees, a 74 degree swing. Even though I cleaned the P68 less than 2 weeks ago, it will be getting a cleaning today. On days like this, it makes sense.

    Well, its 10:30 am. It is not warm due to the 4 inches of refrigerant we got yesterday plus it is misty and raw. NOT a good day to shut down before leaving for work at 7AM

    Supposed to warm up but not quite there yet. Since I deep cleaned the stove 2 weeks ago, I decided to let the stove decide whether to clean tonight or tomorrow. Wed overnight is supposed to stay warm and then it is supposed to start at 50 deg and drop later in the day.

    If I go home and fire is out and stove is cold it will be cleaned. If not, then tomorrow night it is. If it stays cold and raw, I can let it go a bit longer.

    Learned not to trust a "forecast" till it happens.

    I was going to clean the stove today but instead I decid.....Ahhh, I never really had any intention of cleaning it today. I'll do it tomorrow, or maybe the next day.
