yup,channel 13 news finally admits the st. pete/clearwater area has a "medium" case of red tide.if you plan on vacationing in florida its time to change your plans if you booked rooms in this area.dead fish,lots of seaweed on the beach and in the water and eye and respiratory irritation possible.i guess i will be making the longer drive to the east coast for at least the next month.

this is brought to you by the phosphate industry and inaction by local government.the nutrient laden water was stored in huge retention ponds for years.when the bottom of the dam started to leak and the dam threatened to burst these geniuses thought it would be safe to release hundreds of thousands of gallons of contaminated water directly into tampa bay without treating the water first.they would also like to dispose of more of it by injecting it into deep wells below the floridan aquifer,which is where we currently obtain our drinking water.our springs are slowly drying up because the state continues unsustainable population growth and everyone needs more water for drinking and their backyard pool.oh yeah,almost forgot to mention that our state is built on limestone,very porous and when enough water is removed huge underground caverns open up .thats how sinkholes are formed...think about a hole forming in 24 hours thats big enough to swallow a house.its happened here recently.sorry for the rant but im triggered ...

if you can change your plans the east coast is looking much better,say from daytona or further north...

Goddamn, man-- don't send 'em here! :mad:

I would advise everybody to stay the hell out of Florida altogether. After all, everybody down here is crazy and stupid and the smartest guy in the whole state only has a two-digit IQ, and what's worse is y'all might end up catching something that doesn't exist in ANY state other than Florida or see some terrible crime that doesn't happen ANYWHERE but Florida or something!

Don’t sell yourself short, Toe.
You have a higher IQ than that!
Anybody who can put a sentence together like you is smarter than your average bear.

Matter of fact, you could use a few less.
Nah.
Never mind. The rest will just grunt approval

Tolt em and tolt em, we all closed down here.... Too dangerous..... Too close to FL... Bridges out, bluebonnet plague is rampant, big snakes everywhere, and them damn giant lizards from GA.... Radiation everywhere..... Don't even need flashlights as we all glow in the dark.... Gators everywhere walking the streets.... Popeye's is all out of chicken everywhere....

UPDATE: Somebody with book lernin' figured out that half-life thingie and the radiation should be ok by about 3812AD so we may opern up on a limited basis after that..... Until then, We Closed....

I hear TX is cool in the summers....so go there.... and stay out from down here..... Ain't safe....Ain't safe at all....

:cool2:

We have a timeshare on Lido Key we go to every summer.... Wife's actually, was her mom's..... Lido Key is nice where we are... Close to the end with no way off south end so no thru traffic and no stores of any kind in our area.... Very quiet and not much traffic at all....

I'd like to go to the Daytona area but in the winter.... I prefer beach areas in slow times.... Room overlooking the water close enough to hear the surf... I don't give a damn about swimming in the gulf or ocean.... Pool maybe.... I like the quiet....

I've been down to the Redneck Riviera in the winter and enjoyed it. (Panama City, FL) Lot of places closed, rooms cheap.... Quiet.... Old nice motel on the beach down there that does NOT do online at all.... and I ain't telling..... ;)
