So, Hurricane Alex is heading towards the Gulf Coast and bringing with it oil from the leak in the Gulf.
I have stored my water and food preps, and added several face masks to my preps.
I am not directly in the path of the storm, but I worry about those who are.
The beaches will be destroyed by the oil. The clean-up will be of gigantic proportions and will take years.
Recovery for the wildlife will take decades, possibly a century or longer.
But right now, Hurricane Alex is pushing more and more of the oil sludge towards the shores of Louisiana, Texas, Alabama, Mississippi and Florida. Even though the storm itself will not hit the shores in some areas, the increased waves and wind that will reach all those shores, bringing all the crap from the Deepwater Horizon oil leak.
Maybe this is Mother Nature, Gaia--however you want to personify the planet and ecosystem--saying "You want oil, you bastards?!? Here, here is your damn oil! I hope you choke on it!!!"
Anyway...I have my hurricane preps done...how about you?
