Wicked Winds of the West

Well tomorrow through Friday night is looking very windy for the lakeshore.  Unless you live in a cave you are probably very aware of what is coming.  I always enjoy these storms even if I can’t make it out to kiteboard.  The last one that comes to mind is the wind we got from hurricane Sandy a couple years ago.  This storm should be different as it will be wind out of the West instead of out of the North.   I’m planning to monitor conditions throughout and if I can, go out with my 5.5m kite.  All I can say is to be extra cautious tomorrow and Friday and do not go alone.  I think the undertow could be extreme with straight onshore conditions.
