the smell of gasoline in my park...

An oil spill happened in Salt Lake. Last Friday night, an underground pipeline broke and got into Red Butte creek, which came down into the big pond at Liberty park and into the Jordan river as well. When I went running on Sunday morning, it stunk like petrol. It was weird not to see or hear any birds at the pond. As I ran out into the neighborhoods, there were birds and ducks in every puddle I passed bathing and drinking. It had rained a lot, so there were lots of puddles to be had. Thank goodness.
