I left for Virginia with my son to visit my mom and sis for the New Year. I get back today and walk in the house and it is 61 degrees. All I said was WTF. The stove was on, but had a real small lazy flame. I looked at the stove and could tell it didn't look right. The hopper lid was uneven. So I went lift it and it wasn't latched. There was a pellet stuck on top of the gasket. I just looked at her and shook my head. Cleaned off, scraped the pot, and now she is running like she did when I left. Can't believe she didn't notice that. The outside temp this morning was 4. Good thing we got home when we did. There would have been ice on the p61.
