From Near the Murky Waters

Our neighbors over at Bay St.Louis, now have visible, detectable oil. Some people are doubting we will get any on our beach, but maybe that is just being hopeful. So far our waters here will be open 20 miles out for another week. Lawyer ads are just flooding the television and air waves. BP is juggling the situation as fast as they can. A friend attended the four hour training, and I quote "that trains you for nothing." There is a sense of - we have to do something, when all we can do is wait. I think for the most part we are used to disasters that come quick, inflict damage, then go. We are resilient in our efforts to clean up and rebuild but a slow moving disaster well, I think some are ready to jump out of their skins.
On a non-related note, who has a garden in? How's it going? All this rain has made the garden spring up, fill in and produce. I have already been pulling peppers and tomatoes, squash and eggplants look very promising.

More Oil Slick News

Rumor has it that with all the wind that we are having most of the damage will be west of us. Another rumor is that BP has a gag order on the press because it would prejudice future lawsuits so the pictures you see in the paper will be limited. I wouldn't breath a sigh of relief because that sucker is still pumping out oil and well, the wind could change.
Aside from that, with all the disasters going on, I never made a huge the "garden is in" post. It has been in for a while now. We have the new bed we share with a neighbor and I have two beds going here. I'll have to take a picture of the new bed to show you.

BP Oil Spill

Here is the latest oil spill picture. I haven't been vocal about this because I'm watching to see what happens like everyone else. What I know is that the equivalent of 60,000 barrels of oil is coming out a day and when it hits us it's going to be have an outstanding long term affect on our ecosystem and seafood industry. Never mind Washington and BP making sure BP is to blame, it's still going to do major damage to the gulf coast and beyond. We can only do what we can. Thanks to a life long resident and activist here on the coast I have the following information:
To volunteer: 1-866-448-5816. If you have a boat: 425-745-8017. To report oiled wildlife: 1-866-577-1401. Spill-related damages: 1-800-440-0858. If you can"t come help, PRAY!
