Thursday night we had a severe thunderstorm. Friday morning the yard was covered with this stuff. Its a clear gel like substance that is slippery and cool to the touch. It is slowly melting away.

You know star jelly is a Cyanobacteria don’t cha? And it doesn’t fall from the sky as many believe, but comes from biological sources.

When the wife told me about it early Friday morning that’s what I thought it was too, but when it did not go away during the heat of the day Friday and was still on the porch and flower beds this morning I knew it was not star jelly.

The county came and gathered it today, and I believe he is correct. Sodium Polyacralate. (I think I spelled that right) It is a substance put in commercial soil to help it retain water. The daughters puppies destroyed the wife’s flower bed last week and the soil was scattered all over. It got wet in the storm and expanded. He told me to call him Wednesday morning and he would let me know.

"Star Jelly" is claimed to be many things. A gelatinous fungus, regurgitated frog and worm slime, cyanobacteria, slime mold, and sodium polyacrylate just to name a few. It even inspired the original movie The Blob. I remember news stories in the 80's and 90's reporting gelatinous rain events.

Chemtrails aren't real. Neither was the weird snow I got back in 2016 that had a hard time melting that left no water in the dish.

The County will let you know the bill for toxic cleanup or some shat.
