No oil yet, but if you listen to the NEWS, everyone should stay at home and sell their boat.

I'm not sure if it would be safe to make reservations for Biloxi or not

What is the game plan for the little Bay in Destin that the water gets pumped in from a few miles off shore?

I'm not sure where your talking about... I would guess if there is oil they turn the pump off, seems simple enough...

Pretty sure think that isn't fed by pumps since it is right by the pass... hopefully they will figure out a way to block it with booms but who knows. That water is so dirty that know one would notice an oil slick... Crab Island is a different story.

Effing breaks my heart to think about all those beautiful beaches up there.
