He leaves a nice imprint here. They'll bounce back.
Now he wants me rub his belly. He is apologizing now.
Everyday the weatherman predicts the Gulf Oil Spill as if he were predicting a hurricane. The winds are coming out of the north and will be a few more days. As of this morning the spill has moved off a little to the south and west. It is still a threat but it is a ways off. There is so much preparation by all kinds of local organizations to prevent the oil from washing ashore in the bayous and bays and rivers. There are areas set up now and being set up in other areas for the animals should they be found with any oil on them. So far we have had turtles wash up but there is no evidence to show they died from oil contamination. Volunteers are gathering at the beaches and cleaning up debris. Debri soaked with oil is very hard to clean up.
This morning the 4 story high dome that is going to be placed beside the oil leak is on its way. It will take 12 hours to reach the spill and 2-3 days to set up. This procedure has worked before but never at this depth which is about 3-4 miles down. What they hope to do with this is to re-direct the leak into a funnel to be delivered to a ship on the surface. One of the sources of the leak has been capped but that did not change the amount of oil still spewing.
We are all keeping our fingers crossed that this works.
What a mess in Tennessee. A couple of bloggers have posted about the floods and folks there are folks who have lost everything. Water is so damaging and with it comes the mud. Even though I've been through floods where we live my home has never been flooded. Our prayers are with you all as you recover.
