If you took them from your boat, I hope it was on a trailer, and shot through a window in your garage... While sipping a nice hot toddy.

I mentioned earlier that I took these after hiking to the shore (it's part of a National Park). The biggest danger was that there were tree branches coming down everywhere due to ice accumulation.

A friend at the time (now deceased), who was an 80 year old retired commercial fisherman, said it was the worst storm he could ever remember. The Coast Guard reported 25 - 30 foot seas during that storm.

Where I am, we get it from the north-west as well as the north-east (as in these pictures). This past summer, we had a lot of your wind coming our way from the south, but we are in the lee in that case, so it's not so bad. My place looks out to the north-west and at this time of year we tend to spend more time looking at the lake, rather than being out on it. I refuse to pack the boat away until the snow prevents me from backing down the ramp... Hopefully, I'll be good for another three or four weeks... Then I'm going to drop in on Tomas in the Virgin Islands!
