Terrific weather day for outdoor spring cleaning

Saturday was a great day for cleaning the pool decking, ‘one’ of the back patios, grill and teak outdoor furniture. Ten years or so in, I’m still pleased with how our unfinished teak cleans up even after spending the winter outdoors. I don’t expect to finish the job tomorrow since I’m planning to visit my mom who is “not happy” in the rehab center. I do wish her surgery would have at least relieved her pain.

Besides the nice weather and bright sunshine all day, I ended up spending a few hours cleaning the carburetor on my pressure washer after sitting too long. I’d be curious to know if the several small engine tools I have are unusual in gumming up after sitting over the winter with our current blends of gasoline?
