Gales of November be blowin'

Yesterday was the 40th anniversary of the infamous sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald in Lake Superior, and our weather in these parts seems to be remembering that time over the next couple of days. Looks like the gales of November are coming, with gusts up over 50 mph in many parts of the state, sizable downpours, and even a few inches of snow in the Northwoods.

Both of these coverging events makes for a nice excuse to play this. Here, enjoy the next 6 1/2 minutes, and learn some Wisconsin-related history (granted, Mr. Lightfoot takes a bit of artistic license, but not that much).

I can definitely hear the rumbles outside right now, hear the rain pelting my house, and see the severe storm warnings just to the west of Madison. Doesn't seem like the typical November night, so you better batten down the hatches and grab your nearest Thunder Buddy (language NSFW)

  1. I thought from the headline you might be referring fondly to "The Wreck of the Brothers Fitzgerald"...

    Does anyone know where the decency goes,
    when you beat up on teachers and nurses
    And take funding from those who need it the most
    To fill up the billionaires purses?
