The Halloween Weekend Gale!

Again on Halloween weekend we had high winds out on the lake that were sustained in the range of 30-40 mph with higher gusts. This gale swept across the lake from the southwest so it didn't produce waves as large as when they come down out of the NNW, but the storm still produced 10-12 foot waves according to the NOAA GLCFS page shown below.
