What is that stuff floating on the surface?  Where did it go?  Any dioxin in it? Where will it land?

Aftermath    3 weeks later 03/28/04

The following pictures were taken 3/28/04, 3 weeks after flood subsided.    Almost all of the ground is covered by a layer of new sandy soil deposited on the grass as well as large piles of other stuff washed down into the yard.   The ground cover here should be all green, the white stuff on the ground is sand, not snow!
