Well, at least someone with a true big wave machine decided to show up and get after it.

Mike Wendricks of Wadsworth jumps waves on his jet ski at the south end of North Point Marina in Winthrop Harbor on Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2011.

Mikey is a friend of mine and I was there when he was riding. The picture doesnt do any justice of how big the water was. Needless to say, he wasnt out there very long....

Saw on the news last night that 10-15 boats broke free from their moorings in a harbor and the wind pushed them all into a corner and then pulverized them against the wall. 5-6 of them sank and the rest that didn't are still total losses.

Sad Sad Sad

Here we go again !!!!! Another day of 15-20 foot waves !!!!
At least all of the boats are out of the marinas now so they don't sink like last time this happened.
