I put some of the furniture back on the porch. Fired up the pressure washer for just a few minutes to touch up the door mats for the front porch. Got out the remaining empty 5g gas cans, went down the corner to fill them, and the boat up, with gas. Not that I am going fishing, but the boat holds 24 gallons of gas. All of the equipment will be filled and remain full, as well. We are entering the prime time of hurricane season, so having some extra fuel around is always a good idea. I always add fuel stabilizer, and then try to burn the fuel over the winter, so that all the cans are empty again by spring. This insures no stale gas around, which can cause lots of chaos (and expense) in the spring. Stabil costs a bit more to add to the already high price of fuel, but is worth every penny in the long run.
