A good photographic journalistic look at the event with some nice imagery, some of which can scare a person

As a southerner, I found most of it to be very scary, (#3 being an exception), but definitely unusual, and therefor, interesting.


To me, 68 deg water is COLD!

You would find it a bit chilly for sure Mike.

The water temp was about 42F
The air temp was about 38F.

Thanks for looking and commenting.
