Remnants of hurricane Sandy on Lake Michigan shores

Coastal devastation on the Atlantic seaboard shore,
they had known it was coming and where it was going to go.
Making a left turn when blocked by the Greenland high pressure ridge,
and than a hard right being steered by an approaching cold front.
The trajectory forecast was made five days ahead of time,
A natural disaster or geo-engineered?

The wind fields were greater than 1,000 miles wide, 
and reached the southern half of the Lake Michigan shoreline.
As seen at Klode Park in Whitefish Bay in Wisconsin.

These images are from the Messer/Mayer Grist Mill in Richfield, Wisconsin. Kathy and I visited here during their annual art fair. Another treat was the tour of the Ebling Farm restoration. The Richfield Historical Society has done an excellent job with the farm house and the artifacts inside.

I am always fascinated with close up images of gears.
