The East coast storm has some repercussions on the Great Lakes. This forecast model for Monday Oct 29/12 shows some serious Northerly winds over most of the Great Lakes. With low water levels every where on the lakes the rise and fall of water depths due to the wind will make for some head lines if mariners are caught in the storm. If some of you have left your boats in the water to take advantage of an Indian summer it might be a good idea to see if you are secure for this blow.

Cleveland reported 65 knot gusts and 23 foot waves last night. The buoy now reports gusts to 43 and 12 foot waves with a 7 second period.

Yes, 90 was closed. Too much water over the road from breaking waves, pretty amazing.

Winds were gusting in the 50's on the superior shore here yesterday. We were getting some snow/sleet showers through the eastern UP from Sandy's outer bands. Amazingly huge storm.

Still raining and blowing here. It was reported that part of the Cleveland breakwall was washed away Monday night wreaking havoc with two marinas. Sunken and smashed boats, floating docks destroyed. Good fun and it's not even November yet.

Thanks Cap, we know better then to leave the boat in late, ours is sitting in Algonac at Sassy, nice and dry and safe. All our friends and family have hauled and destepped the rig, they are safe.

I should have looked at the live ship map to see where everyone was parked.

Did I hear right, St Clair low water is restricting shipping?

Joli thanks for that update. The focus was on the east coast and the Great Lakes were in the secondary bulls eye. When you have that much of a low pressure system with a northerly wind you better be on the upwind side of the blow. I hope none of your friends had damage sustained to homes or toys. St Catharines remains unscathed. Welland Canal shut down for about 10 hours.
