Storm passing over Lake Erie (and nearly pushing me off my feet)

Lake Erie is, of course, a lake. But you wouldn't know it sometimes. It has the rage of an ocean when a storm get it kicking.

While the Great Lakes don't have tides, per se, they do experience seiches (when the water in the lake is pulled to one side, like dragging a bucket of water and it all sloshes to the back)

Makes me homesick. I grew up on Lake Michigan and really miss the waves.

Ocean people are skeptical of the lakes' vastness until they actually see what it's like.

Looks like some beach erosion going on there. Reminds me of a tropical storm pounding the Atlantic beaches - a sight to see!
