Yes, I had computer meltdown with a compromised email, so it's all changed. I'm not sure how to get my email to you without posting it public and I lost all my contacts, so I no longer have yours. If you were using the yahoo account, it is the same name except @gmail.com. If that doesn't make any sense, I will send you a note through the mails!
Yes, what happened here was mind boggling. We actually watched the stream of toxins float down the river like a glittering, alien river on another planet. It was not just discolored mine sludge, but glittering metallic mud. The local authorities are very much down playing the incident. In fact, we are getting better news from UK papers such as the Daily Mail. The most ridiculous thing now is that they have reopened the Animas to recreation saying that the water is safe but do not touch the sediment, the bottom of the river, the river banks or the rocks which are all still glittery gold. How do children, dogs, tubers, rafts etc get into the water without touching bottom?! They still are not telling us what exactly is in the water or what the levels are. All that comes to mind is that the EPA told us "the air safe to breathe on 9/12/2001" . Um...no, it wasn't.
I just found your business email, if that is still yours, I will email you my address!
Thank you for thinking of us. Hope you are doing well!
