Today is the Anniversary of the Sinking of the "Edmund Fitzgerald"


Here is information on the commemoration.

The Gordon Lightfoot song is wonderful. Listen to the lyrics.

  1. It's also worth noting that while such disasters used to occur with some frequency (every few years) there has NOT been a Great Lakes maritime disaster of similar scale since the Edmund Fitzgerald (37 years and counting). Another triumph for meteorology, perhaps -- similar to the advances that now help prevent plane crashes due to downbursts/wind shear?

  2. Elaine,
    Thanks for making that point. You are absolutely right but I was concerned our readers might be tired of me always proclaiming how good weather forecasting as become.
