On Saturday, I appeared on KLBB's Stan Turner radio program, discussing shipwrecks on Lake Superior with diver Stephen Daniels. Thhis time of the year, the Big Lake is too weatherly for small boaters including myself and now is when The Witches of November come calling. On Nov 10 just 33 years ago, Superior took down the Edmund Fitzgerald. About 50 years ago, the day before Thanksgiving, an old man survived an ice-filled day and night attempting to rescue a fellow boater. Daniels told me he planned to SCUBA dive into December. "The surface temperatures are about the same year around," he said.
