While it wasn’t as bad as the White Hurricane of 1913, or the storm that took down the Edmund Fitzgerald, we had a good 3 day “blow”
Commentary on the White Hurricane here:
For the 1913 storm, barometric pressure got down to 28.6, and for the 1978 storm it was 28.2
Monitoring the buoy between Leelanau and the Door Peninsula of Wisconsin, showed just over 28.8 inches of mercury during the afternoon of October 26th…That’s Low
The buoy can be tracked here
Sustained winds in the county ranged around 30-35 MPH with reported gusts to 70 MPH.
Some areas around Glen Lake had power out, keeping the power company crews busy. We all appreciate the Glen Arbor fire crew response in removing trees that had blown down over roadways.

No, Asian Carp is not being served for lunch at the third annual Freshwater Summit, but there will be a keynote lunch panel about Asian Carp with national experts! If you live, work or play in our northwest Michigan freshwater community, you won’t want to miss the third annual Freshwater Summit on Friday, October 29 from 9-4:30 at the Hagerty Center in Traverse City! Panelists include Mark Burrows of the International Joint Commission, Captain Luann Barndt of the U.S. Coast Guard and Tribal Chairman Derek Bailey of the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians. Other sessions include oil and gas exploration, Chain of Lakes fisheries, Boardman River dams, inland lakes strategies, Grand Traverse Bay hydrographic survey and watershed forestry. You can download the agenda by going to the The Watershed Center website @http://www.gtbay.org/.
Registration is $20 per person and includes lunch. You can pay online or call Denise Baker at 231~935~1514 ext. 4 by October 22. Preregistering is strongly encouraged, as the Summit usually sells out
