Watch that video V, its a pilot that did a flyover of the area. He’s a environmentalist and says this is the worst thing he has seen. I just found it right now. Im hoping to God that this isnt as bad as some people fear. Ive read reports of 5,000 bpd to 50,000 bpd. At the present time I dont know what to believe. So much sealife, and human livelihoods at risk.

Im not trying to downplay this at all, just hoping for the best. I too fear that this could be a huge catastrophe 🙁

I’m headed to the beach right now to watch the sun go down….can’t forget the liquid refreshments. Thanks for the kind words V.

A toast to the great Gulf of Mexico, and a middle finger to BP, you arrogant bastards.

Jag, your photos of the Texas Gulf Coast are hauntingly beautiful.  They should be just beautiful.  I’m so sorry this is happening near where you live!!  I have just recently had the pleasure of visiting the Gulf Coast in Florida, off season, and fell in love with the beauty of it.  It makes me sick to think that it too may be spoiled by this.

BMT, that video is  hard to watch!  What an awful waste of one of nature’s masterpieces.

My uncle has a beach house on a barrier island just E of Pensacola.  I’m afraid to call him and find out how he’s feeling.  The beauty and fun to be had down there — I have very fond memories going back 30+ years.  To think it could all get tanked really, really bums me out.

I think BP trying to consolidate all the lawsuits into Texas courts is precursor to bankruptcy protection.  I don’t think there is any way they can pay for this disaster.  Maybe putting the number 3 oil company out of f’n business, might turn a few offshore drillers heads.

Jeff,

Thanks for sharing the photos and your personal experience. A dose of the reality of how this is affecting people from someone you “know” (on the site at least) is really a sobering feeling.

All the finger pointing on TV really ticks me off. For crying out loud, BP, you’re going to be held accountable no matter what. Please stop pointing fingers and just admit you screwed up!

I think this whole thing has the potential to accelerate Peak Oil by at least a couple of years. The public outcry to ban offshore drilling entirely is going to be enormous.

    Re: Gulf Oil Spill Reaches Land

Thanks everyone for the kind words. Your Texas Costal reporter, JAG, reports that the Texas beaches have no oil that I can see, just a bunch of seaweed, which probably means the oil isn’t far behind. I loaded my truck with seaweed for the compost pile (stinky) and I’m going to get another load later in the week. 

Anybody else compost seaweed?

I just hope that a Hurricane doesn’t flood my garden with oil this year.

PS: Just to clarify, I didn’t take the pictures that I posted.

lol….its just a likening of my physical self. The tried to take a picture of me for the beer logo, but the camera lens kept bursting into flames for some reason. The artist who rendered the likening, now runs around mumbling “Diablo! Diablo!”.
