Here in Biloxi we aren't the only ones watching and worrying about the oil in the Gulf. On Saturday we were north of Clearwater Beach, Fla., where the water was uncharacteristically murky and people on the “Nature Coast,” as this area is called, were very concerned about the wildlife and water.
I just spoke to a woman from Toronto, who says they are thinking of us along the Gulf Coast and hoping for all our sakes the oil leak is capped soon.
