Oil well successfully capped!

At 2:25 p.m. this afternoon the new (and experimental) cap successfully stopped the oil from gushing into our Gulf waters! B.I.G. thanks to one of my blog followers for the update out of New Orleans.

It's a temporary fix until the relief wells are completed, but the best news we've had so far.

A new Special Report from New Orleans.
"BP stated that even though this is a positive sign, it will be more encouraging in a couple of days after extensive testing that the cap will hold. Also, the Assoicated Press calculated that the oil stop spilling into the Gulf 85 days, 16 hours, and 25 minutes after the explosion."
