An Early Winter Classic

Gordon Lightfoot , a Canadian singer and songwriter for close to 50 years. often captured historical events in folk ballad form. This one gives a sense of the power of Lake Superior as the winter winds begin to churn the water...and man is caught in its grasp.

As winter closes in, this powerful lake has a great effect on the weather. So do all the Great Lakes. The combination of the five lakes can be felt at all times of the year , but the winter is most spectacular in form.
