    Super Hornet practice demo this morning reminded me of one from a few years ago. If there are "high shows," this one would be called a "far show."

    Was a bit out there, I'm guessing due to the...

    Yep, there's been a nice clearing over the beach for a while now. Slightly surprised no one had come out to get while the weather is, if not quite great, adequate. Hopefully the clouds that surround...
