"October Gale" - by Trevor Pottelberg, featuring a rogue wave blasting up out of the choppy Lake Erie waters. When cold gail force winds whip across the warm open waters, it makes for some truly dynamic conditions. I often come home from the lake bruised and battered after taking a constant pelting from sand, debris and water. Twice now, I’ve gotten frost bite on my hands from the extremely harsh conditions. Is it all worth it? Yup!
