"I walked through on Sunday and saw all sorts of damage from OAk the way up to North Ave. The asphalt tears up pretty easily. The waves weren't this bad but a few people less lucky than me got a soaking on the curve:"

"Yup, you and I had the identical experience AM. For ten or so years I rode the path and for fun, I'd give Lake Michigan the finger and say I won again this year. Then, I too went down and slid, and slid. Not a good feeling.  Now that I…"
