Cocoa Beach canals are an unwholesome yellow.

Transparency is <20 cm in the IRL out front today. All the way across. Worried about the overcast conditions causing another DO crash.

Just got off the water. Couldn't see my feet in ankle deep water. Pyrodinium bloom was bad enough a couple of weeks ago. It has been replaced by pea soup "nano plankton". Lot of fresh storm water from the rain day before yesterday. Lot of dead rotting water hyacinth and other debris out there. Lots of "True Green", "Blacks", and other lawn company signs in yards too. You know they are putting down their usual monthly herbicide/fungicide/insecticide/fertilizer mix; fertilizer ban be damned. St. Augustine grass is not going to stay super green into August without regular infusions of nitrogen. It would be getting chlorotic by now if it wasn't getting fed. You can watch the lawns start to yellow. Then the little chemlawn sign appears and a couple of days later the lawn is neon green.

AM dogwalk the other morning, I chatted with a guy spraying a lawn. Asked him about the "ban" and he said, yes they are not fertilizing in compliance. You could smell the ammonia/urea in the spray he was putting down so I'm pretty sure he was not aware. If I were bolder I'd have asked for a little of his concoction; TN/TP analysis would be interesting.

Pee in toilet, don't flush for two days.

That what the Indian River off of Pineda looks like now.
