Oil spill - Nashville perspective

As some of you may know, I drive a really big Ice Cream truck for JACK-fm sometimes, and it uses a LOT of oil… So, I’ve naturally been following the affects of April 20th’s Deepwater Horizon explosion and environmental catastrophe. Some news reports estimate as much as 1-million gallons of oil have been leaking from the broken well EVERY DAY, with no end in sight.

We’ve seen visuals of the huge oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico, but to put it into perspective I thought I’d share this map. It shows you just how big this oil slick actually is by placing it right over Middle Tennessee. You can keep an eye on the size of the Gulf Oil Disaster, or move the slick to your own hometown, courtesy of IfItWasMyHome.com.
