I finally (yes, I have been extremely busy!) got the chance to go outside today to check on the pool. Here’s what I found:
I cleaned it off, and the edges where the ash had built up on the tile wall. Hopefully the cleaner will do its job so we don’t have to drain the pool and get it acid-washed again like we did after the Cedar Fire 4 years ago!
Now that the Santa Ana winds have stopped, there’s a real good chance all the ash that has blown out to the West will come back East and land around here. So, I’m holding off on doing any major ash cleanup around our yard (plants, concrete, etc.) for another week at least.
