I was planning on opening our pool on Saturday so I was doing all the cleaning and got the pool looking great. My pool in underneath two very large live oak trees. Live oaks are considered evergreens because they drop their leaves in the spring time. This of course makes a huge mess of the pool and pool deck. Unfortionately after the leaves come these little flower pestal things. They stain everything, plug all the holes in the strainer baskets, ug nasty. I keep the trees because they are worth more than the pool here in TX.
So I'm using my gas blower to clean these flowers off the pool deck and whamo! I loose my balance, yes, I fell in the freaking pool! Its amazing how much stuff can go through your head as your falling. First, I can't believe I'm going to fall in the pool, I'm fully clothed in my grub around the house clothes, then of ****, I have a gas powered blower in my hand, then splash, oh thats not as cold as I thought.
I did manage to put the blower down so it did not go into the pool with me, but the kids all loved it and the wife got pictures. The next 2 hours of yard work were quite wet and sloshy.
So share your, I fell in the pool story.
