People seem to forget sometimes that just because they're freshwater doesn't meant the Great Lakes aren't effectively inland seas.

Those waves are proving it.

There are reports of 72 mph wind gusts from this storm.

I'd like to see waves crashing against the rocks on south LSD. We don't see that much around here, but it would be way too dangerous.

There are so many places where the drive is separated from the lake by a wall and a beach and nothing else.

My boss and his wife are seriously thinking of not taking their kids out.

Yup, makes sense on many levels.

It does

Plus, on a purely selfish level, with no treaters out, I could make popcorn for supper.

I'm sure the kids will be unhappy, but they'll at least be safe and unhappy.

Red posted a great idea to FB. We start at MC and work our way through all the raids. See how many we can get done.

Yeah I need to double check what the klaxxi do and which kill order we want to use.

Maybe we could use the hallway to "practice" Thok.

Less chance of an accidental pull.

That might work.

Oh man. I should tell you guys the ghost story that was told to me by the security guard at one place where we have equipment. You wouldn't need to know the layout of the building. That would be a great way to end the raid.

From Insider. It is so worth it to watch the whole thing. I've included the link so you can read the interview.

Tipster unearths treasure chest of classic WoW raiding memories

by Lisa Poisso Feb 23rd 2012 at 1:00PM

Do you ever wonder what you missed by not playing WoW back in the early days? You've seen the classic instances, of course, as you've swatted aside their bosses during mining expeditions for transmogrification gear -- but what were these viragoes like back in the day when conquering them took 40 players at the top of their game hurling themselves against the storm, before modern levels, gear, abilities and game mechanics reduced them to mere echoes of their former fury? Screech "rose-colored glasses!" all you like -- WoW classic and The Burning Crusade were far and away the eras that pinned me most devotedly to my keyboard, smitten by the game. (Others think very differently, as demonstrated below.)

You can't really relive the classic experience today; there's simply been too much water under the bridge. Still, I'd love to be able to give newer players a taste of those old raid instances in a way they just can't get from muscling through the instances today. But if playing through won't do the job, neither will videos from the past. Boss kill and strat videos cast an analytical eye on the proceedings, remaining aloof from the atmosphere and focusing more on the spray of combat text and special effects. On the other end of the spectrum are roleplaying epics that, while entertaining, represent the particular personality and experience of a specific group of players.

If you've got time to burn, though, you might enjoy sinking into these vanilla-era flavor films by Order of Watchers on Ragnaros (EU). WoW Insider reader Karol discovered these old-school gems ("Maybe it just found me in a nostalgic mood, but I think both of them are masterpieces from the old times and worth a mention" -- we agree, Karol, so thanks!), tipping us off to this abstract of one Hungarian guild's march through classic encounters and The Burning Crusade. Somewhere between a guided tour, a roleplaying narrative and guild memory book, these videos attempt to preserve a glimpse of the wonder the guild felt on the path through the earliest endgame content in World of Warcraft.

I've had this song stuck in my head for some reason so I thought I'd share a video that shows why it was attached to Heigen the Unclean from Naxx.
