Took these pictures an hour ago from the boat launch area.
Waves are in the seven to nine foot range. The big one, waves over twenty feet, must be away from shore out in the open water or at the lake's southernmost point.
Lake Michigan is a nasty mess!
it's so crazy to think that those pics are of a lake and not an ocean somewhere

Our shorehouse however, did not. And the rest of the neighborhood. What I saw today was just absolute devastation. I was in awe. Our house is on a lagoon which leads to the bay and there's a creek across the street which also leads to the bay. I can't imagine what Long Beach Island looks like but they aren't letting people on the barrier islands for at least 10 days. They wouldn't let you drive to the houses from the main road, you had to park and then actually sneak past the cops because they were directed to not let anyone to their house down towards mine because the streets were still flooded. Water is at the bulkheads when I left and there's still high tides to come. Uugghh!
I saw boats and cars sitting in the middle of the road, a persons entire back of their house blown out. It was just insane.
Our house sits on 4.5 ft stilts and we had water and mud all over our first floor. Everything is ruined. Going back tomorrow to do some more clean up, what a mess. Power is still out there and all over Jersey, luckily my main place has power. We lucked out there.
But, no one was hurt and that is the important thing.
Check out these pics!

Thank you for all the well wishes folks. To anyone affected by this storm my heart goes out to you and your family. This storm was just awful. I can't imagine the cost of it. The holidays are going to be no fun this year.
