BP ruined our Beach Party

BP Oil Spill

We were itching to hit the beaches this year, our preferred strip of sand is on the Gulf Coast of Florida, but it’s looking like that’s not going to be a desirable destination this summer.

Like Florida needs another economic hit, with foreclosures causing the tax base to dwindle and head out of state, tourism is their only hope to weather the financial storm. The Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploding in the Gulf and continuing to spill crude into the waters will ultimately make the sunny shores of Florida smell like a refinery.

We’ll most likely head to the shores of the Carolinas, before the oil spill has a chance to enter the Gulf Stream and makes it’s way up the east coast.

I was born in a cross-fire hurricane
And I howled at my ma in the driving rain,
But it’s all right now, in fact, it’s a gas!
