Why on earth has no one trapped that thing, before it ends up killing a child?

Apparently it is very wily and whenever they see it the thing books outta there. 

Same story says they are trying to catch it and then release it down in Florida.

$5 says its for snakehead control.  One invasive species held in check by another.

Alligator may be in St. Mary's County, official says | Local | somdnews.com

 

Walker would not disclose the location of the lake, citing public safety. “It’s fairly close to a residential area,” he said.

“We don’t want 87 rednecks going in there and trying to shoot up the area,” Edwards said. “It’s going to a preserve in Florida.”

Oh yeah...definitely worth the trouble and cost to take an alligator from Maryland down to Florida. Kind of like on HHI where they "relocate" alligators that get a little too used to people.

So it's close to a residential area, and the concern is that rednecks come and shoot up the area??  That is a whole new level of stupidity. 

Of course, why should I be surprised.  These are the same idiots who are being outsmarted by an alligator.

I think it was last summer, there was a gator loose in southern calvert county and some local came in with a crossbow and killed it.   Personally I say bring on the gators, maybe they would help with the deer overpopulation?

he's my favorite on that show

Yeah we watched that show too. Then it just got too repetitive. I mean there's not much else to what they do. lol  I think the show needs more stories about their lives. I'd be interested in what they cook. lol  But it's just the same people riding around catching gators.

I can't think of a more terrifying scenario than of children swimming in, or playing near, local water spots with an unexpected and unseen threat such as this around.  Almost no one at this latitude would even suspect this.  It's a tragedy waiting to happen.

Its 10 min of boats driving, 5 min of personal stuff, and 45 min of slow mo camera in the water with flailing gator while someone yells "shoot!!!" over and over.

After watching Jaws as a kid I was convinced a great white would show up in the Chessie Bay at my beach and swallow our little boat while fishing.  And that movie with the gator in the sewers made me poo outside for a year.

 

Obs 80F, baro 29.84 to make this post non banter

WB 12Z NAM.  Complete disaster if this had been a snow storm.  Lot of forecast busts on the way…

Ehhh... the models are going to struggle with the placement of the heaviest rains as is typical in this situation.  Either way, a lot of times the east side of these storms is where the most action occurs.

Amazingly,  finally scored a hit.  1 - 2 punch of decent storm.  Best stuff  slid just north, but scraped between .6 and .7 I'd bet.  Still lightning too close to go out and check.  Have to check in the morning.  This was the last of the storms for the evening based on radar, so that was a huge score.  PWS just north have between 1 and 1.5 inches.  I live 1/2 mile too far south.

*eta

Oh hell, I underestimated.   At least 1" in the gage!  Hard to see exactly in the dark with a flashlight,  but def an inch.  

Man, that just felt good. 

Must be nice. Walking on my lawn feels like walking on corn flakes. Storms have missed in every direction for weeks. Getting old.

We will see what the rest of the 12Z suite shows.  3K was further east.  Actually at this point, I am just going to look at the radar every hour…

Add .16" from  midweek "storms" and the .6" yesterday.

Brings the total since May 3 to 6.27".

Euro and NAM say I get that much Thursday.  Lol.  I'll take the way, way under, but that'd be funny.

1.05" yesterday evening brings total since May 3 to 7.32".  Nearly 3" of that in the last 2 weeks, or since right before Henri.  It has turned decidedly "wetter" out here.
