  • grandma caesar

    i live in sw arkansas. many of the plants (flowers, bushes, and trees) in my yard have holes eaten thru the leaves. not on the edges like cutter ants---holes in the middle of the leaves.

    grandma, I saw the same thing in central Virginia. The average person needs to post what they're seeing and are there any areas that remain safe in the South???!!!! The EPA should be monitoring this fanatically, but I guess we have to do it for reliability.

  • I live in Birmingham AL. I am an avid gardener. I also majored in the Earth Sciences in college and have been watching the prevailing storm directions. None of the precipitation we've received locally since the BP blowout has been from the south. Precipitation has been predominantly from the west, except one storm that came from the northeast and another that came from east-south-east.

    My plants are currently fine.

    Last year I had blight.

    BP has unleashed a nightmare scenario on the Gulf Coast, the health of millions of people and an entire ecosystem is in dire jeopardy. Let's not lose focus on what we can prove by wasting energy on conjecture.

  • Fayetteville, North Carolina

    No rain here at all. It has rained in my area of North Carolina a whopping FOUR times this entire summer and spring since the disaster in the Gulf. Of course, the great Doppler radar guy in Raleigh says nothing about this dreadful lack of rain.

    Like another poster said, rain isn't coming from the south for us either. I literally have to water my plants and trees with a water hose. I feel like I am in Saudi Arabian desert.

  • The concerns of geologists are well founded, there is going to be a methane explosion and tsunami, see the prophecies in Book 12 at , millions are going to die on the gulf coast.

  • Douglas Tickner

    Hi, we live in Upstate New York near Lake Champlain. We have had dying plants of berrie bushes, roses, maple trees and to a degree Hemlock trees, willows and birches. That was at the end of May 2010. Then all above had regrowth. As of late the trees, bushes and garden produce have strange dead spots within the leaves and segments of the forest seems to be affected.

  • Douglas Tickner,

    Michigan is dealing with an oil spill as well. Check it out if you have the time. Maybe Lake Michigan is the source of NY's foul rain.

  • Ron Griffin

    After the last two rains our rose bushes and hostas developed strange looking brown spots and eventually ate through the leaves. Never had this before but I don't know what caused it.

    We have minor damage (burning in middle of leaves) as far as Cape Breton Island, starting about 4-6 weeks ago. My semi-wild cat often won't drink the water outside (which she always does except in winter when everything is frozen) and keeps asking me for water from the tap (shallow well water); often she won't take it and I can taste myself the water has gone off this year.

    Of course, that could be chem trail stuff not corexit rain but I suspect the latter has made it up here from evaporation in the Gulf albeit doubtless we have far lesser concentrations than further south.

  • In Eastern Ontario, Canada, the maples are turning as usual. However, they have brown spots on them. None of the lovely completely yellow leaves this year, but yellow with lots of brown dots and blotches. The hop hornbeam which are yellowing less dramatically, are also speckled with brown.

  • Douglas Tickner

    Hi, from Upstate New York near Lake Champlain. The damage to the leaves and trees is horrifying, brown spots with holes through the leaves and some branches totally dead. I walked my forest this morning. Yesterday the Mulberry trees and Squasch and Zucinni plants were all green and thriving and the overnight temperature was between 50 and 60 degrees. No frost, but it rained. This morning sections of the Mulberry tree were plain dead and shrivelled up as were sections of the Zucinni and Squasch plants. I took photos, if anyone is interested, I can scan and email them..

    Here on the Gulf coast in (formerly) lovely north Florida, our hardwood trees' leaves have pin holes in them and are coated with a white, powdery substance. The garden bloomed wonderfully and started off well until June, then stopped producing. We got no melons of any kind, no bush or pole beans, very few peas and no peppers. There has also been a plague of HUGE grasshoppers and a new variety of stink bug, but very few pollinators (or flies, or mosquitoes). All, in all, very unusual (as is the drought in the middle of August through today....Where are the convection thunderstorms? Where are the September gales (tropical storms)????
