"Gary finally hooked a big shark last night! A crowd on the dock watching, he fought with it for nearly 45 minutes (fortunately a volunteer took over the pole for a few minutes so Gary could rest). At one point, both Gary and shark took a brief break. Ultimately though, the shark tangled the line around the snorkel area buoy line and then he was stuck. Sharks can't breathe if they can't swim, so ...

" ... Gary and another brave soul grabbed a skiff from shore and paddled out to cut the massive man-eater free. Reel life heroes. As we watched, the shark had stopped struggling and disappeared from the surface. All concerned onlookers feared the worst. Fortunately though, upon the approach of the rescuers, the shark mustered up the strength to break the leader and swim free!!!
|A big thank you to the owner of the borrowed skiff. (Mary, 3/5/14)|
|A good calm night to play bingo. 3/5/14|
|Looking SW at the wall cloud passing by. 3/6/14|
|About 30 seconds later, this picture shows the wall cloud moving quickly.|
The temperature dropped a good 10-12 degrees during that time.
Gratefully, there was no rotation. 3/6/14
