|I have a good work rep for making top notch posters - this is not one of them.|
Since I already had to make a run for bleach, Lysol, and other necessary disaster clean up items, it was easy enough to pick up some neon poster boards. I think they are helping. A couple little kids got off of the school bus, looked at the sign and just walked on. I'm a little worried about the fellow who looked to be about 12. He studied one of the signs. And then walked to a deep part of the 'lake' and just stood there. Is he illiterate? Does he not care about what e. coli and heaven only knows what he may track into his home? Someone else gave him a word to move along before I opened the window to yell something along the lines of, "What part of fecal matter don't you understand?" Obviously my little sketches of e. coli weren't scary enough.
And yes - there were fish. I don't even know where fish would have come from. Fish?
3 gallons of bleach, one cheap mop to dispose of at the end of the day, a bottle of Clorox cleaning spray, one aerosol can of Lysol, a jumbo box of Clorox wipes, 3 neon yellow poster boards....? A necessary expense.
The chance to be a "please don't play in the $#!+ laden water" community activist? Priceless!!
