Calm down, St. Louisans - no oily sheen yet.
St. Louisans love love love Destin, Florida. Nary an oil glob has washed ashore, but officials down there just told KTVI that the gigantic BP spill in the Gulf of Mexico has spooked would-be visitors:
Destin officials say nervous travelers are already having an effect on the economy here. And the accommodations industry is trying to adjust. Officials say most condo complexes, hotels, and resorts have changed normally strict cancellation policies, allowing people to cancel at the very last minute if oil arrives.
Apparently, the web story says, no oil is expected as of yet, and there will be a three-to-five-day warning before any arrives.
