Hello from southern metro Minnesota, which is just barely south of Northern Wisconsin :P

Enjoying the extreme wind? I live on a small lake, can't even imagine what it's like coming off the big one!

Wind

Grew up in Chicago (the so called WINDY CITY), but have lived up here for nearly forty years.
Always tell Chicago folk that they don't know what wind really is till you've lived up here.
They, of course, don't believe me.

Well, they do realize that Chicago is windy because of Lake Michigan and now you're up by Lake Superior... Right?

Wind

Actually, we're about 65-70 miles ENE of the TCs on the Apple river flowage. A couple of miles short of Superior.
High winds from the east (off the lake) aren't usually a problem in Chicago.
High winds off the Great Plains, however, are.
And we (I mean you and I) are closer to the edge of the Great Plains then Chicago.
I'm probably wrong, but I've always suspected that explained the periods of high wind we occasionally get.
