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