Wiper Blades in Winter Storms

Is it a good idea to stick the wiper blades up from the windshield (i.e. not leaving them lying against the windshield) when the car is parked during a snowstorm? We've had severe winter weather in the DC area and are having more. Some of my neighbors do this, but I've never had a problem with the wiper blades once I've heated and defrosted the car - and I ALWAYS get rid of ALL of the snow and ice before trying to use the wipers. Thank you!
