Winds on a Flooding Lake Champlain

Today the wind is blowing like crazy along Lake Champlain. I love living near the lake, I can go down and watch a sunset behind some mountains; I can go down fishing or swimming without having to get in the car and drive somewhere. I don't live on the lake but I live damn close to it.

Anyway, Lake Champlain is quite high. In the 6 years I've lived here I've never seen it as high as it is right now. We get big waves on the lake from time to time but when it's this high it's quite cool to see. I saw that the road that leads to my house was closed due to waves washing debris up onto the road. There were branches, barrels, large plastic objects that I had no idea what they were, and enough sticks to build a hut laying on the side of the road. They had a plow truck literally plowing all this stuff off of the road and onto the side, then they had what looked like other people scooping up the debris into another truck. So I decided to get some videos and a few pictures of the really high lake, big waves, and the clouds. Enjoy.

Turn down volume before playing. The wind is loud.
