I keep mine on the side of the house, so yes, I can see the roof through the windows of the room over the garage. Still, the ugly discoloration is not worth a big fuss. I used car wash soap last...

After a remarkably nice January, we got our first snow last weekend, about a foot, then another 3-4” last night. On Wednesday we got down to 14F, so just to be safe I put an oil-filled electric...
