A little too close to home

Zebra Mussels have taken over Dallas, TX!!! My hometown! Ahhhh! They have taken up residence in Lake Texoma and will likely, if not already, move into Lake Lavon. The Dallas Morning news says "they are multiply at a dizzying rate, and no one knows how to eradicate them". (sadly, it is not an easy task) They were first noticed in the Great Lakes in 1988, and have slowly moved south - surviving for days outside of water. Crazy. More info here.
