This week's question was: This week marks the anniversary of one of the worst Great Lakes shipping disasters. The gales of November came early. What was it?
The answer is the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald, which took place Nov. 10, 1975, killing all 29 on board. Until 1971, the Fitzgerald had been the largest vessel in the Great Lakes fleet. It had been carrying a load of taconite from Wisconsin. The sinking was memorialized by Gordon Lightfoot in the song 'The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald."
Several people got the right answer, but Laura Williams of Woodridge was the first both to answer AND give me a way to reach her so I could give her her prize. So congratulations to Laura, and if she can e-mail her t-shirt size, I can get it out to her.
