SHEBOYGAN - The effects of superstorm Sandy could be felt here in Wisconsin. The storm brought high winds and high waves on Lake Michigan.
"It's a once in a lifetime to see something like this," remarked Chris Barlow, one of several spectators watching the waves along the shoreline in Sheboygan.
"This is pretty crazy. Earlier, I saw a big wave go over that little red lighthouse," said Theresa Kuczynski.
According to the National Weather Service, Hurricane Sandy caused winds of up to 40 miles per hour here and waves up to 18 feet high.
Locals and visitors took it in Tuesday afternoon.
"You look everywhere and the waves are coming in non-stop. It's just an experience. It's cold, but you don't mind it," said Barlow.
"As long as nothing's getting damaged and no one's getting hurt, it's fun to see it like this," said Joe Robitaille.
Even though it was beautiful out here, the Coast Guard and other officials reminded people the waves posed a danger, asking spectators to stay back to stay safe.
"It's better to enjoy it at a distance," said Barlow.
"Oh yeah. I'm not going out on the jetties today!" exclaimed Robitaille.
The waves were a reminder of Mother Nature's power.
"She's pretty unpredictable," said Kuczynski.
And were a reminder of the people who are left reeling in the storm's aftermath on the east coast.
"It's really sad what they have to experience and we're a thousand miles away and we're experiencing this," said Barlow.
An experience they won't soon forget.
