Frankenstorm Sandy Meets Lake Michigan: The Movie

The past couple of days, I have been posting photos of the wild waves whipped up on Lake Michigan here in Chicago by Frankenstorm Sandy, located hundreds of miles away. And now, the movie.

The video, about 3 and three-quarters minutes in length, is here:

This video, made with the same Sony NEX-3 camera as the stills, captured the roiled waters, geyser-like effect of the waves crashing against the seawall between Belmont and Diversey harbors (a short distance from downtown), and the thunder of the waves combined with the deafening roar of the gale-force winds that provoked this nature riot.

If you prefer the peace and quiet of the stills, they can be found here and here and here.
