> Dennis, it was meant as a joke, but I was curious also by how he came up with 5 feet. I was writing it as half joke, half curiosity, like, tongue in cheek, haahhaaaahhaaaaaaaa type humor, as in "How did he determine it was 5 feet," but I wrote 5 inches instead, it was late, and it was light hearted humor.
Guess I shouldn't try to be funny on this list.
I was curious though as to why or how he determined it was that size, (5 feet) and added that, since the article didn't say why he thought it was that size, nor how he came to that conclusion, so I was joking about it, like he used something

Thanks, have a great evening.

I honestly hope they find a piece that large, and that they find it by this summer or fall before the first big snow in the area.
