If there's wind, I'll be there. Or somewhere else, if there's any indication that it might work better.

Mike Urban is an avid hater of Wolf lake, but it sounds like the next closest call besides going to the Michigan side. I might show up before the T-storms too.

No real t-storms until later today and it looks like the only real windy place on the lake. Strong stuff too.

I think you are going to get a thermal block though. I don't see the forecast hitting Waukegan that hard (10-13knots) I don't know though...could be way wrong.

Muskegon - but too much driving of course.
You don't think that with the due S forecast Kegs will be building?

I see it's already blowing 17 on the offshore Chicago meter, which is a good sign.

Mike, what's your call? You are the most experienced here and being a pilot and all.....I'd trust your experience. Don't want to put pressure on you if you are wrong, but you'd have the best call IMO. So where are you going lol?

What ever I do.... do the opposite!

I think it's going to be about proximity. If you're close to Waukegan, go there.

I'm closer to Wolf Lake. South Haven and Waukegan take the same time to drive to from my place.

The little pull of the land tends to make Waukegan work when the airport is showing 190 degrees, just slightly south west.

Crap shoot... roll the dice.

As a relative newbie I think I will head to Waukegan. Nice day to be at the beach in any case.
