    Wow! That looks rough. I can't imagine trying to surf on that. Wait a minute, I can't imagine tying to surf at all. LOL

    Last night on the news was a film clip of 2 guys on jet skis. They are nuts & if they got in trouble, other lives would be in danger trying to rescue them.

    I'm a West-Coaster and I am having trouble wrapping my head around 18 foot waves on a LAKE. :D I have seen programs about Lake Michigan so I am not totally ignorant, but still!

    Those look like some serious breakers coming in off the ocean during a storm.
    Think I heard some boats were sunk that were still in there slips from the winds and choppy water.
