Below is the Nearshore forecast for the next couple of days on western Lake Superior. I would dearly love to be up there to see 10-14 footers rolling in. There will likely be some great shots later today on the Duluth Shipping News website, which is where the photo above came from. There is a cool shot from yesterday of the Coast Guard heading out for heavy weather training. A nor' easter like this will have the surf rolling in at Park Point and there will likely be kayakers out surfing the big swells when the wind drops. This would appear to be one of those days when you really need to weigh that 'adrenaline pumping fun' vs 'downright dangerous' equation. I'd still love to be there!
