I'm just back from 2 weeks in Spain and Portugal, where we had temps in the 80s and 90s.  Now back home where it's still 60s, but not for long.

"Lake Huron rolls, Superior sings
In the rooms of her ice-water mansion
Old Michigan steams like a young man's dreams
The islands and bays are for sportsmen
And farther below, Lake Ontario
Takes in what Lake Erie can send her
And the iron boats go as the mariners all know
With the gales of November remembered"

The Great Lakes are a shipwreck collection.  Read here about the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary:

And read here about the great Storm of 1913, when 19 ships went down and another bunch were stranded:

In the Lakes we don't have destructive marine critters nor corrosive salt, but recently we've been invaded by foreign zebra and quagga mussels that cover everything up.

IN addition to the Edmund Fitzgerald wreck, I can recall waking up as a kid to news that the Carl D. Bradley had gone down in a storm in 1958, another victim of the Gales of November:

Probably has the Tru-sonic horn. One of the best mono consoles ever made, fidelity wise.
