|One of the charter members of the Tuesday
Sunrise Golfers is moving to Jacksonville, FL
CARL MIONE has been a regular fixture at Countryway Golf Club (at least 3 days a week), and has been known to move chips around to arrange the most powerful 'foursome' to win the big bucks.
"Cool" Carl, has never been shy about implementing new rules for Tuesday Golfers, and always has a few 'comments' (sometimes bordering on 'sarcastic') when playing golf and also at the 19th hole, where he's particularly 'tough' on his fellow Octogenarians, especially Pat Donelly.
|"We'll miss you Carl, and are looking forward to that invitation to play the exclusive courses in the Jacksonville area!" (At your expense, of course!) "COME BACK AND SEE US!"|
"First you forget names, then you forget
faces. Then you forget to pull up your zipper...
Even our Octogenarians don't remember these times...
Big 'waiting list' to join this 'RED TEE' Club...

THUNDER & LIGHTNING
is one of nature's most deadly hazards. Every
season is lightning season here in Florida. our state is known as the
"Lightning Capital of the United States."
Lightning is a gigantic electrostatic discharge (the same kind of electricity that can shock you when you touch a doorknob) between the cloud and the ground, other clouds or within a cloud."
There are some conflicting ideas about how lightning actually works and how it interacts with the upper atmosphere or Earth's electromagnetic field. According to NOAA, "Lightning is one of the oldest observed nattural phenomena on earth. it has been seen in volcanic eruptions, extremely intense forest fires, surface nuclear detonations, heavy snowstorms, large hurricanes and, obviously, thunderstorms."
THREE TYPES OF LIGHTNING:
GROUND FLASHES: There are two categories of ground flashes: Natural and artificially triggered. Natural ground flashes occur because of normal electrification in the environment. Artificially initiated lightning includes strikes to very tall structures, airplanes, rockets and towers on mountains. Triggered lightning goes from ground to cloud, while natural lightning is cloud to ground.
CLOUD-TO-GROUND LIGHTNING: In this type of strike, a channel of negative charge will zigzag downward in roughly 50-yard segments in a forked patter. This path, known as a step ladder, is invisible to the human eye and shoots to thte ground in less time than it takes to blink. A typical cloud-to-ground flash is a negative stepped ladder that travels downward through the cloud, followed by an upward-traveling return stroke.
CLOUD FLASHES: Clouod flashes sometimes have visible channels that extend out into the air around the storm but do not strike the ground. The terms "sheet lightning" and "intracloud lightning" refer to lightning embedded within a cloud that lights up as a sheet of luminosity during the flash. Heat lightning is lightning-induced illumination that is too far away for thunder to be heard. Lightning also can travel from cloud to cloud. Lightning refers to long, horizontally traveling flashes often seen on the underside of strato-form clouds.
