Potential scary days in a trip like this are the crossings of large bodies of water. Next weekend we expect to cross Lake Ontario. If you want to see how high the waves are on our crossing there is a phone number that provides reports from buoys floating in the middle of Lake Ontario. You can get the wave height, wind strength and direction, air temperature and water temperature at two locations on the crossing from Oswego to Trenton or Kingston. http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/dial.shtml shows how to use the dial a buoy. http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/Maps/EastGL.shtml gives a map showing the location of the Lake Ontario buoys. To get the report by phone from Buoy #45135 which is off Prince Edward Point on the Canadian side you dial 228-688-1948 then enter 1, followed by 45135#. This morning the wave height was under 1 foot and the water temperature was 39.4 degrees F. Isn't technology great!!
