    Unhappy

    Thats only 1 in Havasu. 2 in TX and 3 in FL.
    It is scary though. Thats (Lake Havasu) close to the water I play in. We share the same water. Our water temps are in the 80's. Damn scary indeed!

    How the heck do you figure that? Kind of hard to call a fact a false alarm...don't ya think? Ya might want to call the families of the six cases they know of this year and explain to them that it was all just a false alarm....hmmm
