16 to 18 footers on Lake MI

Time to unwinterize the boat. I tried to go and see them as I live 1/4 mile away but the sand is blowing so bad I bailed out. Some idiots are sitting there for minutes with their front to the wind just sucking up sand and taking the paint off. Maybe the morning will be blowing less and they will be full size.

Saw them on the news tonight. HUGE waves. Crashing right over the piers. The splash off the end of the pier in Holland went higher than he light houses on the end of the piers!!!

And that's just what it looked like on the beach in Muskegon this afternoon at 3 pm, now of course the wind is blowing like what we call a "Tropical Storm".....this sure is fun for me (of course I am only visiting this week.) Looking forward to KW in 6 days!
