We have a deck, with poor drainage in a few spots (standing water).
Normally, we only get about 24 inches a year here,
if that, (colorado foothills), and the standing water evaporates
Not so much, this year,as we've had more rain than usual.
This deck is largely flat, not tilted slightly downward, as
is common for most porches I've seen. In general the water drains out
between the timbers (so to speak), except in the problem areas.
The small spacing btw timers is non-existent at these areas
clogged w/ silt, and or the wood has swolled them shut.
(Not so concidentally, these are same spots that typically have
6-12 feet of snow drifts on for most of 6 months ...)
Any suggestions for reopening the spaces btw timbers?
A broad flat putty spatula almost works
(but not really, too slow/cumbersome)
should I consider using a saw blade, or a pressure washer, or
