i get alerts on my i-phone when anything bad happens or is going to happen. right now, its a flood alert for the potomac river, and that is not good! all of the sand, salt, garbage, asphalt scrapings, car drippings, kitty litter, dog crap, and varied rubbish from the last few months of wintery hell will be washing down the sewers to the creeks and rivers, and finally into whatever water you live near. polluted stormwater overflows into our water supply. here are three ideas from the audubon naturalist society we can all do to try and reduce the toxic stew.
1. fix leaky cars
2. choose organic fertilizers, but don't apply them if your yard is frozen or before the big rain storm.
3. use CMA-calcium magnesium acetate- for future de-icing ventures
mark rockfish trophy season by entering the maryland saltwater sportfishermen's association (MSSA) 27th annual spring tournament "championship on the chesapeake": you could win $200,000...or i could. the event takes place the first weekend of may and is said to be the largest spring rockfish tournament in the country. see you on the bay!
last year virginia past a law requiring boaters to pass their safe boating class by some date...after dealing with random legal issues recently, i thought it best i educate myself on the laws of the bay and get certified as soon as possible. because the angry fisherman is not likely to sit in a confined lecture hall, i found this boating certification on-line class: you dont pay for unless you pass. sounds like me. the wife is doing it, too.
