Afternoon storm

It has been so long since we have had a storm during the day….

The storm was building on shore as we were out fishing. We kept our eye on things and headed in when it was getting closer! We were docked and the boat was covered before the storm hit!

Lake Erie was angry

Friday night we had gale forced winds out of the north and Lake Erie was rough. It caused major damage to boat docks, roadways, homes, etc. Anything on the lake front was being tossed around and flooded with large waves. It was like a northeast Ohio hurricane.

Yesterday we went to my parents house in Vermilion, Ohio to check out the damage. My parents live up a hill from the lake, so they were spared any major damage. Lots of power lines down. A huge, 150 year old tree fell in the park and somehow missed EVERY house. Now if you know anything about lake homes in a park, then you know they are all very close together. It truly is a miracle this tree did not cause catastrophic damage to multiple homes!!!

the road to our dock
Wires hanging low or across the roads. Ohio Edison turned off the power
they started the clean up but need help removing this large trunk
The water receded and the road to the dock is back open!

Finally the winds calmed down and the mother Erie was happy again!
