Day 69~Our Day of Doom
The oil completely inundated our Coast yesterday. It even filled our bays. Captain John, and all the boats were sent home yesterday as this was happening, due to some red tape error in the location of the decontamination station. Poor planning, lack of execution, lack of education, lack of determination, I could go on, and on, about the problems, but what good would that do? I would imagine he has already said what needed to be said to the proper people this morning. It's a different feeling when it's washing in on our beaches, than some place even miles down the road. We lost, and that's not his style.
He was beside himself every second he was onshore yesterday. He wanted to do something so bad. He couldn't believe we had 69 days to prepare for this, and he was doing nothing as it came in.
Many Coast residents are very curious to know what this is? They are so secretive we want to know for ourselves. Where would you get something like this tested? Anybody have a clue. Alarming to say the least. Can you believe I still saw kids swimming in the water yesterday on Biloxi Beach, the closed Biloxi Beach. I think their parents should be arrested for child endangerment, playing with the oil, pretending it was suntan oil.
THIS IS THE ONLY ONE I AM POSTING, I KNOW THIS REALLY UPSETS SOME OF YOU, BUT I WANT YOU TO FEEL IT FROM YOUR SOUL. CAN'T IGNORE IT, GOTTA KEEP THE FIGHT GOING! YOU KNOW IT'S STILL PUMPING LIKE OLE FAITHFUL OUT THERE, THIS ISN'T THE END!
Booms failed miserably. Silk ones, fancy ones, cheap ones, they all failed. The seas will be really rough for the next 48 hours due to Tropical Storm Alex passing below us. Big waves will only make this work. We need a new game plan, and new leaders to implement the game plans. Enough red tape. We all may know a Captain who went out this morning, madder than hell, with a lead, follow, or get the hell out of my way attitude. He doesn't like losing.
This little guy is freaking out, you forget about the little ones...
and what this is doing to them.
Picture taken Friday, there is still hope. We can pull them, we just gotta get to em'. They are hard to catch.
Let's end this post, with a brighter moment why don't we. Do you see him in the picture below?
Doing what we can do, is all we can do. Keep it going for me please, they are still out there.
Swim, Swim, Swim, Fly, Fly, Fly.............
Pray for My Captain.
