How far is Horn Island from the Deepwater site? Was anything deposited at the ocean bottom as the result of the hurricane that destroyed the island? Interesting. Horn Island's been mentioned before in relation to the well site. On the survey maps in the MMS drilling application, they did indicate that they took "military" areas into consideration when drilling, but who knows where that stuff might have wound up.
My ex was stationed at Eglin AFB and they were always practicing in the gulf. Usually with bombs that were not live, however, if I recall sometimes they were live. Once we were on a sailboat in the Potomac River and alarms sounded to get off the river so they could have "live" fire practice. That was pretty scary seeing as there was no wind and the motor on a sailboat isn't very fast.
A bomb in the driveway, though...that's nuts.
I'm still wondering how a 500-pound dead weight anything just "washes up" though. Think it was the storm that brought it up? Waves and currents in the gulf usually aren't that strong, are they?
