Yeah I dont know if I was the only one, but I could just tell the water was sick. Smelled kinda weird, tasted weird, and had a different feeling in my eyes. I'm actually surprised I didn't get an infection. Good luck, tighten that sh*t up before it gets too crazy!
We had some green stuff in the water Sunday in OCMD. Just have to keep your mouth closed but also really rinse well afterward including your ears and nose. Could feel it the next day or so but worth those big, beautiful, clean waves from Irene. Hurricanes always dredge up gunk from the bottom. Be prepared and increase the foods that fight against it.
I HAVE ONE TOO!!!! I used about a gallon of water in my NetiPot and still had the most discusting green garbage coming out of my nose. I'm really scared to be the next Timmy Turner. (He got a staph brain infection from discusting water up his nose). The water was by far the nastiest water I've ever been in. Got to get a post nasty water routine, NetiPot, mouthwash, shower. Since doing this I haven't been as sick I as I have in the past.
After my month long bout with a sinus and ear infection plus bells palsy from Earl last year...I sucked it up and decided NOT to go Sunday/Monday. The runoff coming from some of these streams is, for a lack of other words, toxic. For example, the Middlesex County town I work in lost power to a sewage pump station, which overflowed to the streets, which was flooded from the nearby stream. Guess where that all is now?
