Default Apache or Cig water coming to Chicago later today

Mother nature is going to give the Chicago shoreline a beating later today 10-19.

The forecast is for on-shore winds of 50 mph or more that will be whipping up a forecasted wave heights of 20-25 feet !!!!

Let's see if any of those crazy bikers will ride the path today !!

Well at least we both know that neither a Fountain or a Baja could handle those waves

Hell, I've seen Sutphen's run right through those conditions WFO, leaving big Cig's, OL, and Apache's in the dust. True story!
