Colder, drier air working south across the Great Lakes today will bring the start of a brief taste of fall! The arrival of this cooler air will also bring gusty northwest winds, which will result in a moderate swim risk this afternoon for Alger County beaches along the Lake Superior shoreline. The strongest winds are expected over land, in northwest and eastern Upper Michigan, where gusts approaching 25 to 30 mph are expected later today. ... See MoreSee Less

Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula

Pirates on the Great Lakes?! Aye!!

The Great Lakes pirates were some of the most fearsome in the world.

These swashbucklers ruled the high fresh-water seas and made their living sailing and searching for treasure not known to Jack Sparrow – lumber, illegal alcohol and wild-game meat. Known as Timber Pirates by some, these buccaneers would ship up to the Upper Peninsula to cut down wide areas of timber to sell to industrializing cities east of the state. Alcohol runners would even steal alcohol to sell in Detroit or Chicago, or trade for guns and loot. But they also had a culture of their own—dressing for the weather in knitted wool caps, mittens and sweaters and generally not speaking pirate but instead in the dialect of those surrounding them—with a Scandinavian accent up in the Wisconsin area, a more German-Irish flair in Ohio. (perhaps some "Yooper" e.g. "Walk the plank, eh!)

The most notorious Great Lakes pirate, though, may be none other than Roaring Dan Seavey, who started as a regular sailor in the U.S. Navy. After leaving the military he found himself a poor man with only his ship, Wanderer, to his name and took up a life of plundering only to later become the only man known to be formally charged with piracy on the Great Lakes.

Seavey was a thief who had eyes for large shipments of venison and alcohol, to then later sell at a higher price. Anyone who tried to stop him faced the cannon he held on board. He also was known for putting up fake lights that simulated a port so that incoming ships would crash on the rocks and he could steal their cargo. Seavey’s most famous escapade was his takeover of a schooner docked named the Nellie Johnson. The clever seaman invited the Johnson’s crew to drink with him, staying mostly sober himself. He then threw the drunken sailors off their ship and sailed it to Chicago, where he sold the Nellie Johnson’s cargo.

Seavey retired sometime in the late 1920s, and settled in the town of Peshtigo, Wisconsin. He died in a Peshtigo nursing home on February 14th, 1949 at the age of 84.

Never knew . Thanks for the share .

Great piece of history. Are there any books on his life? Also, I’m looking for material on the lives of Native America Indians on the UP during the Copper Boom (Ojibwa). Any resources or suggestions would be much appreciated.

after all that...he's lucky he lived that long to die such a peaceful way...wow.🤔

that was an interesting story

Wow!

Awesome! Such cool information! Thanks for sharing!

This is definitely the most interesting balloon news I have heard all day! Keep it up guys 👍

This would be incredible to continue to show each day! My dad launched the final weather balloon from Sault Ste. Marie under the same inflation buildig dome that is now in Gaylord!

I find this fascinating, thanks for posting it. I am unclear about the path from launch to the 60,000 mark. How did it get from the center of Montmorency County eventually to the burst point?

Up up and away in my beautiful my beautiful balloooon🎶🎶🎶🎶 Yep, definitely just dated myself. But, Good news Craig. Thanks!👌

Very interesting!! I didnt realize it was THAT cold up there...-81???wow!

So question... When you guys launch that balloon and it ruptures & drops the radiosonde 5 counties away or wherever... How do you retrieve it? Do one of you have to go drive all the way over to the landing site, pick it up, bring it back to the NWS office, and “analyze” the data? Kind of a stupid question, but I’ve always wondered how that works..

Neat and interesting information- thanks for posting. How often do you launch balloons?

Any idea what the furthest distance a launched weather balloon has traveled?

107,000’ is that right? What would the temp be at that altitude?

You launch these around 8PM local time? What radiosonde band do you use, 400, or 1600 MHz?

Ever have a weather ballon land in Lake Huron?

How did it get from burst at 9:02 to the end less than 15 min later?

But there is a chance of collision with airplane. Right? What is the ratio? Better than winning a Powerball?

🤓💫

As a cold front moves through tonight, there is a small chance for a pop-up shower or two, otherwise clouds will begin to clear from west to east. The next couple days will feel a little cooler, especially at night. There is a chance some patchy frost develops under clear skies in the coolest spots. ... See MoreSee Less

Still need to PIG THE LINES. There are different types of PIGs for different pipes & lines + build up. They have PIGs that are like drills with wire brushes on the side that drill out build up while polishing the walls of pipes & lines, it all depends on what the conditions call for then when Fire Dept uses water the city doesn't need a sediment advisory in fact once all the Lines & Pipes are clean then the city can do ICE PIGGING which is very effective on sediments
