The Great lakes Taken Together result in a Weather Vortex. (much like the Sargasso sea In the Atlantic ocean and The one by Japan.) (The "Great lakes
In 1816, A Canadian Weather Front Settled into Indiana and there was No weather. Snow covered The Ground Through June to July. And August hit a Balmy
40 Degree's Below zero For one "day".

without a Cause, Running from nothing, Making strange Noises, Fainting (Dumb Goats.), etc. Then Watch out.
