Remnants of Hurricane Patricia

I don’t know when they started to call Pacific storms “hurricanes”, they were always a “typhoon” before, but this one was true to its calling and nicely trekked east and north into Atlantic regions.
For us on the Great Lakes today, those remnants are merging with a local system to produce our so called first “winter storm” while it is still autumn….

I have the webcam set up on the dock, refresh set at 2 seconds, hoping to catch some wild water action, but the strong winds that will affect us, turning to west from east and south, will not materialise until tomorrow morning.

Most of the boat shave been hauled out – we are enjoying the solitude now and are looking forward to being icebound.
