Jim Braulik listens as Marcia Hales suggests the placement of a laser light on a driftwood post on the Lake Superior beach in front of her house on Sunday. Braulik, who took over the set up of Hales’ annual light display this year, had to rebuild part of the display after the Oct. 27 windstorm. The storm washed away driftwood posts, railings and six laser lights. (Steve Kuchera / skuchera@duluthnews.com)

Wayne Jensen says he's lost more than 15 feet of beach along his South Shore Lake Superior waterfront property near Port Wing since water levels pushed above normal levels in 2014. Jensen said huge chunks of clay are eroding off his land into the lake due to wind and wave action, muddying what had been clear water. Lake Superior is nearly a foot above normal and near record highs for this time of year. Photo courtesy Wayne Jensen
