"This is the biggest challenge I've ever had to face in my life."
--Heard on NPR this morning in a story about a third generation rancher in Fargo whose cattle are frozen under 12 feet of snow.
"You're either a survivor or you're not a survivor."Tony Bullimore was counting his blessings on January 10, having been rescued in the Southern Ocean by the Australians after a four day ordeal of survival in an upturned sailboat. Alone in 50 foot seas, Bullimore survived on very little water, and half a chocolate bar. His story is inspiring. The pitch black hole of an airtight bulwark was his home for four miserable days. He survived, suffering only mild hypothermia and frostbite. "I really thought I'd bought my ticket this time," said Bullimore.
