    OK, true, but it really doesn't matter...if that **** ends up on our beaches, it's going to suck ass!

    Just heard on the news that they can't try and cap the well till Tuesday ??? And if that don't work it may leak till Aug or Sept till they diagonal drill to relieve the pressure. WTF ? The Gulf looks like a toxic waste dump and the ecological impact is off the scale. Apparantly BP was repeatedly warned their fail safe systems were old and questionable. Now I'm no tree hugger and I like my gas affordable but BP should be held accountable if it is proven they were negligent. Alot of peoples lives may be completely changed because of this. Tax dollars should not be spent on this clean up.

    They are calling this system - Extratropical. Since it is cold core, it doesn't have tropical cyclone characteristics. Nonetheless, it looks to provide a nice fetch of SE winds in our direction.

    Ive heard that this could potentially be a named storm.. Alex? That's only if it becomes a little bit stronger, which I don't believe is forecasted to do so. Either way, bring on some waves! It's been far too long for a source of swell for this long of a time.

    I was out yesterday in OC and the water was real green, smelled fresh, and a lot of seaweed and vegetation was floating around getting stuck all over me.

    Let's hope it doesn't turn oily.. ever. Restore the moratorium!
