http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gr2APJnwTAY For the past three days we have been in a huge weather bomb from Minnesota all the way to the east coast and south to the southern states. The wind has been howling like thousands of dragons and we have felt the lash of the dragons breath and the whip of dragon's tails. I took this video October 27 about 6:30 p.m. The wind even got stronger where I live on the lakeshore of Lake Michigan after dark.
On the video my voice is barely heard over the wind blasts and I was having trouble keeping upright. The wind has reconfigured the beach sand into small dunes in spite of the snow fence meant to contain the sand. The city has been at work keeping the sand off the road that runs parallel to the beach. Today the wind is still howling but the colder weather has brought rain.
The waves have stood over 14 feet here at times. People are walking the beach to feel the strength of the wind.
