I know you are all sick of hearing about the oil spill-but it appears it will be newsworthy for a good long time. It's hard to decide how much is reality and how much is "NEWS".
There's no doubt that our coast has changed- the first signs came this weekend when the fishing Rodeo was cancelled.
There's a fishing ban in the Gulf -so reality is beginning to take a new shape...and so is the coastline.
It's unbelievable how MUCH oil is spewing into the water- but here's a great visual from our local news site.
This oil spill will affect our area for a long time to come.
The fishing industry,wildlife and marshes are all suffering and if the news reports are true, some of the marshes may never recover. That's a hard pill to swallow, here on the coast.
The actual spill is east of us but apparently the magnitude of the spill means it will/has affected our area.
If that was not enough we are in the midst of a drought!
Our ditches are cracked and dry-the grass is beginning to die and I am sick of watering plants every day!
So there ya go- I guess I needed a good whine today!!!!
Now- moving on!!!!
