This Storm Looked Worse Than it Was — At Least on Shore

The winds were howling. On the radar the storm sweeping through Northwest Ohio and out onto Lake Erie looked pretty strong.

So I wanted to get to the shore and photograph it. As it turned out, it didn’t leave as much as a drop of rain on Vermilion, Ohio, where I was standing.

But it sure looked menacing as the leading edge of its clouds rolled toward Canada. I seldom get opportunities to photograph storm fronts over Lake Erie so this was my big chance.

Maybe way out over the water was thunder, lighting and heavy rain. But here on the shore, it was nothing more than dramatic looking clouds with giant fingers probing the lake.
