Yesterday morning when I stepped out to get the newspaper, the air was heavy with scent of oil. I live 12 miles inland!! The oil slick is inching ever closer to my beautiful Mississippi Gulf Coast:
Sea turtles and other animals are already washing ashore dead:
High winds and rough seas caused the protective booms to break.
And there are concerns that the oil slick may become caught up the Gulf Loop and actually have more of an impact along the eastern shore of Florida, impacting from Miami to Jacksonville.
Where ever it hits, it will an ecological disaster.
