Re: I told you so….

“The Louisiana Offshore Oil Port, the biggest U.S. oil import
terminal, stopped unloading cargoes from tankers at noon New Orleans
time yesterday, spokesman Mark Bugg said. The port’s onshore
facilities, where crude is stored and dispatched to pipelines, may be
shut tomorrow, he said.

“The port is about 20 miles off the Louisiana coast and handles about
1 million barrels of crude oil a day, or 11 percent of U.S. imports.
It consists of mooring buoys, platforms and pipelines. Unloading of a
tanker carrying west African crude oil was stopped earlier yesterday,
Bugg said.”

I grew up in New England, did a short stint in the U.S. Navy after high school, worked in various factories, built & renovated houses, and finally moved to the Carolinas in 1998 to start working at what was then a large regional bank and is now a really big nationwide bank. I work doing SharePoint management site management. After work I make soap, knit, ride my motorcycle, read, watch movies & eat. I ride a Yamaha V-Star 1300. I am pretty sure that I want to hike the Appalachian Trail someday, or possibly do a long-distance rowing trip. I'll be retiring in a few years, and hope to run a craft soap-making business to bring in some cash.
