It's been a tough couple of weeks for, well, ANYTHING that touches Lake Michigan.

If you haven't seen the videos, allow me to catch you up on the rough conditions around the Great Lakes this fall.

This was in South Haven...

...and here is some of the erosion that's occurred.

Yesterday, a three-mile stretch of M-185 on Mackinac Island was washed out by high winds and waves. It's the ONLY major road on the island - the three-mile closure goes from Mile 1.5 to Mile 4.5.

It's not open to traffic on that stretch at the moment. Traffic as in, bikes and people, because it's Mackinac.
