You mean you'd miss me?

Man, it's pouring like piss out of a boot, but there's little wind and no lightning. I'm thinking the really bad stuff is over with. Temps are dropping like crazy.

Blowing up to 60 here today(and tomorrow) and the barometer bottomed out at 28.38, a record for the state

"When the gales of November came early"

Chicago Storm May Beat 1975 Gale That Doomed Edmund Fitzgerald ...

The storm will be a cyclone, with projected central pressure, a measure of its strength, forecast to be 28.35 inches. That would make it the second most severe system to strike the Great Lakes, according to the weather service.

The Edmund Fitzgerald sank on Nov. 10, 1975, in Lake Superior about 17 miles north-northwest of Whitefish Point, Michigan, with a crew of 29, according to the Great Lakes Ship Wreck Museum’s website. “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald” by Canadian singer Gordon Lightfoot climbed to No. 2 on the Billboard pop charts in 1976.

The Edmund Fitzgerald storm had a central pressure of 28.95 inches. The strongest storm recorded in the lakes was the “Great Ohio Blizzard” of January 1978, which had a central pressure of 28.05 inches.
Hurricane Comparison

In comparison, when Hurricane Earl reached Category 3 strength in the Atlantic at the end of August, its central pressure was recorded at 28.20 inches.

I guess I'll call my brother and see if all is OK.

I'm not sure he can click his heals and we don't have an Auntie M.
