Chimney cleaning 2024-01-06

Every year about this time, I wonder, why is the wood stove smoking so much?

I took the stovepipe off the top, but there was no creosote in there.

Finally I looked up at the roof. Yep, chimney screen completely clogged up.

Just like 2019, 2020, and 2022.

That’s the after picture.

I didn’t take a before picture, because I was busy trying not to slip off the dew-wet morning roof. Maybe you can see my white knuckles in the reflection.
