The pool cover this year accumulated a bunch of leaves and green, algae-filled water. When we took the cover off, EG wasn't on the same wavelength as I was, and he flipped the cover, pouring all that mess back into the pool.
It was a mistake, but I was evil in my reaction. Think green pea soup and heads revolving.
So for a week, I have been vacuuming and vacuuming and skimming and generally making only a little progress. Today I ordered an automatic skimmer. We'll see what she can do.
