My home is in Grosse Pointe, Michigan on the shores of beautiful Lake St. Clair.  Lake St. Clair is not a Great Lake but is part of the Great Lakes Waterways and at roughly 23x23 miles she no runt either.  You can see freighters coming and going and the Mighty Fitz traveled her waters until the end.  And when a storm kicks up you best make way for shelter because the old girl has claimed more than her share of lives.
