Hmmm... Maybe I'll find myself out at the lake tomorrow morning. Looks like it might be some pretty festive waves!

I'm thinking Ontario on the east end of Erie is the real place to be though. Wow, 21 footers !!!

Rob, (or anyone over in the OH, PA area) if you could find a way to get over to eastern Lake Erie, I'd highly recommend it. I've never seen a 23' zone on this report that I can remember.

As good as that looks it's not going to happen this time. My boys and I are going to my parents tomorrow noon, followed by my grandmother's Christmas Eve get together.

I know there is a pierhead light at Presque Isle that should be in the high teen part of your forecast, but I'm also thinking it sits shielded by Presque Isle State Park from the action.

Looking at mapping it looks like Fairport Harbor or Ashtabula might have promise for anybody in that area.

Lighthouses or not I'd love to see them coming in over 20'. One of these days.

I did get to see a Christmas Eve sunset at Grand Haven last year, albeit with a much calmer lake that day.

Good luck if you head out Mike. Hope the waves are big and the sky behind your light of choice good. I'm thinking you'll be heading towards South Haven.

Well Rob, that was the plan, but after consulting one of my secret web cams out of Grand Haven I saw that the wave action was very mild. So rather than waste a trip, I just stayed home. The light was terrible all day anyway.

Maybe next time...

Merry Christmas everyone !!!
