We came home the other night to find a lovely windy evening, with rain in the distance. Then the rainbow came out. It just kept getting better and better - until the rain drove us in.

We have no pictures of it, but today was the third day in a row in which we saw moose on the way to work.

In other news, we just got back from a meeting at the fair. There are big changes that will be quite upsetting to the weaving guild. We have traditionally gotten free passes for booth sitting, in which two people sit with the weaving entries, do fiber arts demos, sell raffle tickets, hang out and enjoy the people for three hours or so. No more booth sitting passes, no raffle ticket sales, no chatting up new members. I've missed being at the fair for the last several years because we were always travelling in August. Now we're here and the fair is going to be a sadder place without friends in the guild space.

Update: We can always buy our own fair passes to do the booth sitting. We'll see if the gang is up for it.

Sea ice images

OK, it's a bit silly, but I want these online somewhere for a game for an online Python class. I may end up not using them, but who cares? These are pictures of sea ice to the west of Greenland back in May.
