    What are the people in West Palm Beach saying about the potential for the oil spill potential of reaching West Palm Beach in the coming days? Quite a mess has been made of the Gulf.

    Please forgive my ignorance, but how is the spill going to make it from the west coast over to WPB?

    The Gulf Stream. Quote from government officials: It is a matter of when, not if, the oil reaches the east coast of Florida.

    Maybe, possibly, it could. Good gosh...for some reason this event has stirred up the "frantic meter" to new levels.

    I was just wondering if the Gulf Stream could have an impact on the spreading of the spill.

    I sure hope not.

    I hope the Keys are not effected in July. To all of those that are helping, donating, or are effected by this disaster. God Bless.
