Floridians sure are nice folks, aren’t they? In the midst of battling their own issues with seaweed and ‘red bloom’, they still care enough about our neighbors to the south to send a couple of boats to help Mexico……makes me wanna head to Florida and yell “group hug!”
Alfredo Arellano, head of the Ministry of the Environment (not to be confused with the Ministry of Silly Walks), announced the pair of boats will be arriving closer to the weekend, and said that the government of Quintana Roo requested about 610 million peso (a bit less than $33 million USD) to acquire its own assets that will lower annual costs in the fight against sargassum, starting next year.
SO between the recent containment efforts using off-shore nets and the help from Floridians, those stinky piles of rotting seaweed will soon be a distant memory….leaving your kids to say “Hey Dad, remember that time we tried to bury you on the beach but couldn’t find the beach under all that seaweed? Ha ha, we miss those days!“.
