I just saw on the weather channel they are calling for 20 ft. waves on Huron and Michigan. I wish I could be there to see that. Batten down the hatches.

The Straits is a hiding place for ships when the strong winds come. Right now I see one anchored out and there may be more. From my point of view there is no way I can see big waves as the island is a wind break when the winds are from the north. I'm in a sheltered bay THIS time.

It isn't all that bad, but Plaunt is not running today. The planes will fly though. Strange is all I can say.
