Super-Storm Sandy Hits Chicago With Gale Force

There are times when Mother Nature nurtures. And there are times when she's a bad mother. The gale that Frankenstorm Sandy produced over Lake Michigan has turned Chicago's inland sea as stormy as it can be. The fact that the ginormous waves pictured below -- and taken between Belmont Harbor and Diversey Harbor just a few miles north of downtown -- are the result of a former hurricane that entered the mainland in New Jersey and is now centered hundreds of miles away near Pittsburgh just boggles the mind.

There are numerous new photos added to the ones I included earlier today. Let me know what you think and please share if you think someone you know might be interested. And if you haven't seen what it looked like yesterday, when the skies were brighter but the lake less violent, please visit this earlier blog post.
