Waves and Wind!

While the waves were a nice size (4-6Ft) yesterday, once the Gales of November arrive in a few weeks, it is not unusual to have twice that size.  This photo from last November is a good example of what to expect.

One of the unusual phenomena that occurs during the worst storms is that people love to flock to the lake shore to experience the power of Lake Superior as soon as they hear on the radio to stay away.

Go figure! I thinks it's built into everyone!

  1. Do the waves ever get big enough to hit the bridge deck?

  2. I've seen them close but it would take a 15ft wave to actually hit the bridge span.

  5. The "City Lights" video is a time-lapse. 420 images with my Canon EOS 6D. It was taken from the hillside at Spirit Mountain with a 500mm lens.
