    Black flies are quickly being replaced by deer flies.
    No-see-ums seem to be coming out in force as well.
    And as VTF said... mosquitoes are EVERYWHERE this year due to the standing water that never gets a chance to dry up before it rains again.
    At least the ticks seem to be going on their summer break.

    Amazing how many blood suckers there are out there.
    Aim for the chopping block. If you aim for the wood, you will have nothing. Aim past the wood, aim through the wood.

    Not sure what happened to my original post but let's try again...must be the Canadian wifi !

    We are up north of you for the week on vaca and the mosquitos and no-see-ums are downright vicious!

    We did enjoy your Fete Nationale day which we had no idea about until a waitress mentioned it earlier in the day. A couple of great local French bands and a kick ass fireworks show made for a festive evening. Sorry you guys lost in the World Cup, was fun watching with the locals at a nearby bar.

    Summer storms are cool...

    I've never seen the back lighting on a thunderstorm this intense. Unfortunately, I missed capturing lighting in the rainbow. I think I took 200 photos trying to get it.

    Crazy how orange/pink it was up there. Down here there was this strange greenish hue to the sky after the front moved through.

    Thanks everyone.
    x-post from the photography sub-forum:


    The light last night was incredible. Everything lined up just right to make the air itself look like it was on fire. Everything took on an orange glow. It was very surreal.
    Here are a few more...

    Storm rolling in with lots of lightning:

    Looking west toward the sunset:

    If anyone is thinking I got carried away with the saturation slider, here is a shot that I didn't touch at all in post processing (no contrast adjustment, shadow lightening, etc). Just a straight export of the RAW to JPEG out of Lightroom. Note that doing this leaves the image a bit flat due to the nature of a RAW file. :

    Moving sux. Had to delay the move this week until month's end, a few things cropped up and I have to pay a whole month for the POD, so we took some of the pressure and stress off us with the additional time. Still trying to unload some furniture. Finishing up the second floor painting, starting on the 1st floor this week. Been in this house since 1992 and the soil line in basement decided to develop a hairline crack. FML.

    Fun ride at Carse Hills last night once the rain deluge gave up. Found a pod of younger UVM bros waiting out the storm in the lot to sneak a ride in before sunset; thanks for the tour! Preacher was super fun, wish that trail went on for miles. The rock stuff and rocks were entertaining as hell in the wet... stay off those brakes! Gorgeous sunset on the return journey home. Looking forward to checking out Saxon Hill later this week.

    Although I hear they’re about to fence it off for a summers worth of bridge maintenance. Keep up that excellent planning Ville de Montreal

    I guess it will be back to old faithful jarry beach in the meantime

    So at the risk of Buttah giving me grief for x-posting photos...

    I enjoyed a great family weekend in MA.

    I was taking a photo of this scene:


    When two ladies decided they wanted to climb up on the rocks in front of the lighthouse. I could have been upset they were butting into my photoshoot.

    They always remind me why I ultimately prefer to spend the summer in the city.

    Contrary to the black flies, these alohas are getting harder and harder to find around here:

    How often do you play? Full gear or just shin pads/helmets/gloves? Haven't played roller hockey in 5+ years but use to play when I lived in Brooklyn.

    We play Tuesday and Thursday evenings, and Sunday mornings until the bike polo guys show up in the afternoon. There is an email list and it’s game on when at least 6 skaters are in. 8+ is ideal but it isn’t happening nearly as frequently as it did in years past thus the shameless promotin’. Sunday skates are fairly consistent. The new rink is awesome and has great lighting, so we’re hopeful the weekday skates get consistent again.

    Shin pads / gloves / some guys wear helmets (bike helmets work). No contact but it’s usually competitive. Mix of playing skills, mostly around C/D/E level in the local men’s leagues. Shoot me a PM if you’re interested.
