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.
