Greater City Providence

Bigger than Rhode Island

This has been all over the interwebs this week, so I’m playing along:

This Google Earth tool allows you to lay the oil spill* over a familiar piece of the Earth to allow you to grasp the size of the spill. Here we see, it is bigger than Rhode Island.

* Notice how I can just say, “the oil spill.” I don’t really need to describe which spill do I?

  • hee hee…I think it’s graduated to “bigger than the size of Delaware”, which every Rhode Islander knows, is the SECOND smallest state in the Union!
