I wonder... :shocked:
I'd love to see something like that, it would be fascinating. Having heard about ball lightning, marsh gas or whatever it may be, to witness one first hand would be a thrill.

Last Season got "swept away" one way and another but this year I would still be up for a trip to Waggoner's.

I'm moving nearer the area so a visit is on the agenda. (I'll bring a white sheet with some holes cut out for vision, don't tell the others).

I would be interested to see some photos of the place when you visit. I think I was told last week by SK (?) there might be two lakes but I may have that wrong.......
