The Gales of October

It was an icky day with wind and rain, but crowds gathered at the canal and the atmosphere there was like a carnival. Wave-watchers shouted with a mixture of fear and excitement. As you can see my camera lens is blurred with water, as the waves often splashed and crashed high and far enough to get me wet. Some people standing on sidewalks  screamed and then broke into laughter after they got soaked. I heard one woman say, “Now I don’t have to take a shower.”

Traditionally Duluth refers to the Gales of November, not October.
