It seems as if fireplaces are much more common out here in Colorado than back east. Here I have a Lennox gas fireplace. When I bought the house the glass was all cloudy, but the previous owner had it thoroughly cleaned and it looked great. Now after about 3 mornings when I turned the fireplace on for an hour or so just to take the chill off, the glass is already beginning to cloud up again.

Is this normal...especially after maybe 6-8 hours of use?

It is normal. One thing we learned is not to clean the glass with anything that contains ammonia - like Windex. (Ammonia based cleaners can cause a milky white haze to be baked on the glass). We use vinegar and water and wipe it with a newspaper. It stays clean much longer but it still gets a little hazy after a few uses.
