Wind storm

We had some good wind coming at us the other day. Check these out.
The wall here is 30ft high and the waves were coming right up to the parking lot and flinging ice everywhere.



The wind mills near Buffalo (background) were flying fast

The rock looking thing is an old foundation from a house. I guess they had enough of waterfront property LOL. When it is extremely windy the little ice block things will launch out of the water like rockets. It is full of broken up ice slabs. With the lake not frozen yet there is a great chance of Lake Effect snow storms that can get pretty wonderful LOL

bet that got those turbines moving

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
