OIL DISASTER

Standard
Here are some of the photos I took yesterday. I saw more than I could
believe. I smelled the horrible stink of oil. I feel for those people in the
Gulf area if this is even a tiny amount of what they are suffering with.
Anyone who is living along the banks of the river or by the lakes that
are affected will surely be affected for some time to come. I could only
stand near the bridges and wonder how long this whole tragedy will
last. A few minutes rolled by and it was all I could stand. IF this reaches
LAKE MICHIGAN I just shudder to think. The EPA is reporting that over a
MILLION gallons are in this leak. HORRIBLE thoughts indeed.
     
That is foam buildup as the oil rushes under the bridge.  Protestors who have been living along the river
and smell that stink. The sign says YOUR CRUDE IS MAKING US SICK!  The media is everywhere on so many
spots it is incredible 
We had storms yesterday
so I was unable to take a lot of pictures but will take more when I get back to the city
on Friday.  The wildlife I saw looked terrible..just so sad.. The Governor is ANGRY over
the way things are being handled by ENBRIDGE company and how much oil was lost
and not reported correctly. Our weather is better today and tomorrow so they are able to
do more clean up. EPA is in charge now so hopefully our area will get more help.
The RED CROSS is in charge of helping those who are staying close to the river and
can no longer take the fumes. I don’t blame them at all, I could only stand near
for a few minutes..Well that is what is happening in our area.. HOPE things are much better
where you are.
SENDING MY PRAYERS TO SIS CAROLE on the loss of her brother and GET
WELL WISHES to BOB R U SERIOUS.
HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT DAY!!

  2. There’s no doubt that this is a tragedy of epic preportions. I guess only time will tell when there will be some relief in site.
