I'm not sure if we are talking about the same storm, but if so I was at Gem beach without the boat that day with my girlfriend and it came FAST. we sat in my car and watched the waves and storm blow through. after it was over it was the ERIEest sureal calm I will never forget. We sat on thwe beach with our feet in the water. The lake was so calm that the waterline sat still on the beach. perfect glass.
