It couldn't possibly be oil rising to the surface of the road from the road itself?
its been awhile since it has rained in Joplin. most of the roads in joplin are either asphalt or concrete with several layers of slurry seal. both types of roads are made with oil products. not to mention all the cars leaking oil on the road as they travel down said roads.
No it couldldn't possibly be oil rising to the surface of the road from the road itself! That is unless the OP doused his house in Oil! Did you not see the run off coming through the gutters and pooling? There is a white creamy looking foam forming! How do you explain that? Don't bother you can't
There is something in the rain I am sure of this. Why is it so hard to believe this is true? Someone has actual video footage of this taking place, and the deniers and skeptics are some of the first to respond.
If you can't handle the truth, then perhaps you should look for a forum that pulls the wool over your eyes!
The lab results will be posted and the truth will stand by itself!

Look for some results to be posted in the next few days.. You will find them on test the rain dot com and here.
Thank you for your time,

Odd that they would post it in over in a thread that has only four pages and 23 flags than in the thread here in a thread with 56 flags and 14 pages.
So, to clarify, you guys never found any evidence that there is oil or any compounds from the crude found in the rain? That WAS the initial point, right? So we can now officially consider ourselves correct if we thought the notions was highly unlikely, and the videos alleging such were complete nonsense?
“I am so taken by the results I want to make sure that nothing was done wrong. What have been some of the materials you all have found in water in the past?”

We checked the solvent for contamination and found none. We found triethylene glycol and Ecogoine methyl ester. You can do your own research, but I do not for the life of me see how the latter got in the rain………..”
TEG is also used as a liquid desiccants for natural gas and in air conditioning systems. It is an additive for hydraulic fluids and brake fluids for this purpose as well. Applications: TEG is used by the oil and gas industry to “dehydrate” natural gas.. The waste TEG produced by this process has been found to contain enough benzene to be classified as hazardous waste (benzene concentration greater than 0.5 mg/L).
