    I guess you could say that on a normal day waves are in a 1-3 or 2-5 foot range. I take the Outback on Lake Michigan only when waves are less than 1 foot or glass smooth, which happens in summer when wind direction is out of the SSW.

    In 1975, a 729-foot iron ore freighter and its crew of 28 went down on Lake Superior in conditions similar to the ones we are seeing today and tomorrow on Lake Michigan.

    Here's a "normal" day for water skiing on Lake Michigan. This evening, will post a picture of the lake's current condition.

    New Guy - That's the one. The Great Lakes can be vicious. But today, not too bad. Am back from Lake Michigan. Waves appear no bigger than five to seven feet. Long way to go if they are going to reach heights of twenty feet or more. Tomorrow will take another look. - Deerfield

    It sounds like the south of the lake by Gary, IN will be getting the bigger waves.

    Well the storm is almost past and there's just devastation everywhere. I can't even get to our house at the shore to assess damage.

    Hope everyone here who has been affected is ok, it's going to be a long week of cleanup. I still don't know how my Supra is, going to check on it in a bit.
