It has been almost a month since we had the rains from hurricane Alex. My plants and trees are showing more damage. Some of them are so far gone, I doubt they will ever recover. Local plant experts claim this could be mold or some other kind of fungus and/or bugs causing the widespread damage in this part of Iowa due to a very wet and cool spring.
Last week we had a rain move in from the west. Just before it started raining, the wind smelled like rotting fish. Not the fresh smell of rain we are all used to. The next day I went out to check the rain gauge and found it had a funky orange slime at the 2 inch mark . there was almost 1 inch of water in there and it had the orange funk floating on it as well. I did not touch it or smell it, but I got enough of it bagged up for testing. It looks almost fluorescent and is very bright orange.
Of course, by now the stuff that rained down may have already been tracked into my house, my dog may have it on her, it could be soaking into the water supply, everything that sits outside may have this stuff on it. Very scarry to say the least. How can we be sure.....? It may already be too late if we have been poisoned from the sky.
