Sundance Fire

12 Mar

Two weeks ago a large marina warehouse burned to the ground, destroying 350 boats, about a 1/4 mile away from Tango. Today, after weeks of continued rain the smell is still noxious and probably contains pockets of smoldering heat. Tango, and many other boats in the rows near us, were covered with a gritty, petroleum soot.

Glad that we hadn’t done any spring cleaning yet, and thankful we didn’t catch on fire, we spent the weekend trying to scrub off the worst of it.

After much scrubbing, we got to a point that was less gritty and smudgy. Once the rain stops (haha), we’ll have to get on our hands and knees and detail her thoroughly, but isn’t that’s a part of spring cleaning anyway? Time to buy a few boxes of magic eraser!

Before and after – took three passes. 1) gel, 2) on and off, and then 3) magic eraser…which really is magic
