Rip Currents

In case you've not seen this sign before. Every year I hear a story or two about these at various locations on Lake Michigan, and and in some places where they might not be expected!

 

And something to remember in the winter months for those polar bear plunges!

 

"Rip currents are powerful currents of water moving away from shore. They can sweep even the strongest swimmer out to see."
