Delray Beach...Awash in Red Tide and More.

While Delray Beach has not been as impacted by the Red Tide as the west coast or those in Martin County, it has caused some concern for Palm Beach County.

A few experienced respiratory issues (I’ll raise my hand on that one) but nothing like what the other areas have experienced.

Civility, politeness, it's like a cement in a society: binds it together. And when we lose it, then I think we all feel lesser and slightly dirty because of it. Jeremy Irons

 

 

While I did see a few people venturing down to the water, there weren’t many when we were there early in the morning.

Civility is not about dousing strongly held views. It's about making sure that people are willing to respect other perspectives. Jim Leach

 

 

The Avenue has played musical chairs these past few weeks, with some stores relocating to a different spot still on the Ave, a welcomed chain putting the finishing touches on their new location, and a few new restaurants coming just in time for the season.

My Houston Astros are in the playoff games!  They won the whole Series last year. This weekend has more college and NFL football as well. But talk about the ideal time of year for a real sports fan...there is also the NBA and NHL as well.

It is a common mistake these days to politicize anything and everything, including music.

Kathy Streib - The word is out! I'm getting  daily reports here in Texas about the Red Tide in other parts of the country! There's so much more we all need to do for our environment and always something new to worry about!

Hello Kathy Streib, I guess I miss to much news, did not know about the red tide.  Now I do know that Kristin Johnston Brewers are beating my Rockies big time.

Hi Kathy,
I love the quote by H. Jackson Brown.  It reminded me of my Dad.  It is, indeed, sports fan season, isn't it?  Go Astros!

I enjoy watching the football games and baseball playoffs, but soon it will be college basketball season, which is certainly my favorite.

Hi Kathy Streib - This is the first I have heard of the Red Tide.  The only Tide I know is the Crimson Tide out of Alabama - YIKES! Can any team beat them?

On a serious note, I hope it clears fast so people can get in the water.

Kathy,

Our nephew who has one of his businesses in Florida (Fort Myers) was telling us about this.  Your quotes are perfect.  It is amazing to me that people think they have open minds, and they only open if you agree with them..A

Grant Schneider it should be gone by the time you return. I was on the sidewalk but it did make me cough. 

Dorie Dillard CRS GRI ABR I decided that if it can kill the fish in Okeechobee, I'm staying out of the water. Glad you liked the quotes.

Hi Michael Jacobs those north of us have been hit harder, especially the businesses that cater to tourists. 

Gabe Sanders I think it's primarily an issue if you have respiratory issues, like me. I could feel my lungs tighten.

Wayne Martin oh yes, and so many people around the Lake and north of Palm Beach County have experienced it longer than we have. This week was the first time we noticed it. 

Donald Urschalitz you're right about that!!  And we need to listen.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD glad you enjoyed the quotes. I have been disgusted and appalled by the behavior and anger that I've seen. Screaming in the hallways, interrupting people!! I am embarrassed by the behavior I've seen.

Myrl Jeffcoat someday we'll learn to have more respect for our earth. 

Kat Palmiotti Thank you!!! Hope you got some hiking in this weekend. 

Joe Pryor just be careful if you have any upper respiratory issues.

Lottie Kendall it has something to do with the algae bloom but I've read that our fertilizers leaching into the soil have an impact on it. 

Patricia Feager you know, we've had it here off and on for years, but this is far worse than I can remember it being.

Will Hamm well, they still have the whole series to play so you never know. My Astros won last night. 

Hi Sheila Anderson After yesterday and today, you'd think I'd avoid walking near the beach because it really did irritate my lungs. But I'll try again tomorrow.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® I don't know who could beat them at this point...Georgia or Clemson maybe.

Morning Kathy.

While I've read and watched about the red tide, I thankfully, have never seen it in person.

Hi Kathy

So sorry to hear about the red tide issues - it's been in the news quite a bit. No issues here...at the moment...but it sure is nasty stuff!

Hi Kathy, how often does this event occur?  The tide is still red for a month now or is it gone?  Thanks
