The Story

The Great Lakes of the United State typically experience a phenomemon called the Gales of November. "November gale, the Witch of November, or November Witch, refers to the strong winds that frequently blow across the Great Lakes in autumn. The "witches" are caused by intense low atmospheric pressure over the Great Lakes pulling cold Canadian/Arctic air from the north or northwest and warm Gulf air from the south" - from Wikipedia. This phenomenon is what sunk the Edmund Fitzgerald on November 9, 1975 on Lake Superior. This image was taken at Holland State Park on the eastern shore of Lake Michigan. The waves you see here are tame compared to Lady Superior's that sunk the Edmund Fitzgerald but it was still a sand in your teeth kind of day.
