    Default Snot wad

    Last weekend we saw our first batch of oil at my house-- it was about 60" dia. Looked like a big ole snot wad---what a mess!
    We have been smelling something awefull for about two weeks but just not sure what it was-- now we know for sure.

    Wow... not good! It is a horrible situation.

    I personally think people will be seeing the oil in many more places than anyone is admitting. Given the fact that dispersements are being used at the wellhead, I think the small droplets of oil are stuck in the thermal layers and can travel long distances thousands of feet below the surface. It may be months before the real impact is known... even up the East Coast.

    We've noticed the same thing with the snakes in Washington.

    I'm really sorry to hear that you've got oil. Where are you located?
