Gulf Coast watches, waits for path of oil spill
Today winds and waves are calmer as masses of oil lurk offshore.
People continue to watch and wait for the weather and ocean currents to determine where the slick would finally come ashore.
So far only oil sheens have reached into some coastal waters.
The oil's slow progress -- despite an uncapped seafloor gusher -- is allowing crews and volunteers to lay boom in front of shorelines.
That effort was stymied by choppy seas into the weekend, but the calmer weather should help.
