The SS Edmund Fitzgerald goes down in a storm on Lake Superior, killing all aboard and inspiring GL to write the finest "sinking ship" song ever written
It was very nice to see this even though the wording seemed to trivialize the tragedy as well as the song.

It's going to be kind of eerie, here in Wisconsin, over the next 24 to 48 hours. Today is a gorgeous, sunny and unseasonably warm day. However...they are predicting a cold front to move through and possibly 6 to 8 inches of snow on the ground tomorrow, much like the November storm which sunk the Edmund Fitzgerald 31 years ago today. I hope the freighters on Lake Superior are on the look-out for the North Witch.

I was thinking the exact same thing, "Gitchigumee". 6-8 inches predicted to begin here tomorrow night, which means we should have a lot of freighters parked here in the Straits of Mackinac. Hope they all stay safe!

Hey you know I was on a motorcycle trip around the North Shore of Superior in June of '05, and it was COLD AND WINDY, brrr... I can 'bout imagine what it's like in November. Those men who died on the Edmund Fitzgerald definitely had a harrowing ordeal, may they rest in peace.

On a lighter note, we had a day or two on our trip when the wind died down, the sun came out, and we were able to enjoy the gorgeous scenery. It is definitely a trip I'll repeat. The people in Canada were wonderful to us, but it's definitely different than the States.

I kind of miss those winter storms from when I lived back east.

For unexplainable reason,I just liked it when they sky was gray and the snow finally covered the ground.

I think it's just the proper mood for winter as opposed to how it's in the low 80s here today. Duuuullll!!

Anyhow,we have the anniversary of the wreck itself & as mentioned elsewhere,next week is the 30th Anni. of "Wreck" reaching #2 on the charts,oddly enough,the week of Gord's 38th B-day.

Doggone Rod Stewart! :D

(It was at #3 this week in '76.)
