A mini-traffic jam clogged the parking area near the Lake Superior Maritime Museum this afternoon, and people tried to park as close as they could to see the waves roll onto the shore near the lighthouse in Canal Park. This photographer could barely open her car door because the wind was so strong. The wind, up to 30 knots, successfully blew this photographer's winter cap off. Water from the waves sprayed the pebble beach, making it a precarious walk. I remember I fell in this same spot 15 months ago while trying to capture a shot of waves and then running away, trying not to get wet. This year, the waves shot up high enough to spray water down on my capless head. A knot is a unit of speed equal to one nautical mile (which is defined as 1.852 km) per hour, approximately 1.151 mph.
