Anyone see any good predictions for those of us along the Great Lakes?

I'm thinking there are no good models for what's going to happen. At the same time, the focus has been on where the greatest number of people are along the East Coast. I suspect we're in for some really strange stuff up here near Lake Ontario.

this morning. Very large waves predicted. Hang on!

3. Mid-Michigan is under a high wind advisory but the Thumb is under a wind warning

I thought I heard something about the possibility of 35 foot waves expected on Lake Huron. The saving grace is, any storm surge will be mitigated by the fact that lake levels are at near historic lows.

I'm going to do my usual storm preps - storing up water in any available pot, pan and empty soda bottle, and get the flashlights ready.

4. They've said 16-22 foot waves in Chicago ...

on Lake Michigan. Hope that doesn't happen! But even if it's not that bad, there will probably be high enough waves to close Lake Shore Drive for sure.

I'm keeping tuned. Right now, all seems quite calm.

PS: Mr. Frazzle just returned from driving up from Hyde Park on LSD and reported it was already looking "wavy" out there.

5. Yeah. You'll have it easy. Sandy's going to park over MY HOUSE for a day and then head north...

 

... through State College and on its way to New York. You'll get high winds and rain, but nothing like I'm going to get hit with.
