Gwinnett County GA http://roadskater.net/taxonomy/term/2723/0 en Head in the Clouds! http://roadskater.net/head-clouds-0 <p>Last night I spent a fun hour on my balcony in Southern Gwinnett County, GA, looking out towards a storm happening in Northern Dekalb and Fulton Counties. I got a few weak lightning shots. I was about to ditch one of the last ones but then noticed what looked like a giant head just to the right of the faint intracloud lightning strands. It took me aback at first, then I thought it was cute. It reminds me of a huge, in-utero ultrasound baby.&nbsp;</p><p>I will try to upload it here so you can see what I mean.&nbsp;</p><div class="image-attach-teaser image-attach-node-1433" style="width: 400px;"><a href="/head-clouds-0"><img src="http://roadskater.net/system/files/images/FaceintheCloud.preview.JPG" alt="Head in the Clouds" title="Head in the Clouds" class="image image-preview " width="400" height="378" /></a></div> http://roadskater.net/head-clouds-0#comments Roadskater.net 2012 2000s United States of America (USA) 2010s DeKalb County GA Earth Fulton County GA Georgia (GA) Gwinnett County GA lightning storm North America http://roadskater.net/crss/node/1434 Thu, 14 Jun 2012 12:14:24 +0000 eebee 1434 at http://roadskater.net 30th Anniversary Athens-to-Atlanta Roadskate 2011 http://roadskater.net/30th-anniversary-athens-atlanta-roadskate-2011 <div class="event-nodeapi"> <div class="event-start dtstart" title="2011-10-09T12:30:00Z"><label>Start: </label> 2011.10.09 7:30 am </div> </div> <div class="event-nodeapi"> <div class="event-tz"><label>Timezone: </label>America/New York </div> </div> <div class="event-nodeapi"> <div class="event-start dtstart" title="2011-10-09T12:30:00Z"><label>Start: </label> 2011.10.09 7:30 am </div> </div> <div class="event-nodeapi"> <div class="event-tz"><label>Timezone: </label>America/New York </div> </div> <p>Registration is now open for the 30th Athens to Atlanta Roadskate, sponsored by K2, to benefit the Whittemore Peterson Institute for Neuro-Immune Disease. </p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>See details here (and sign up!): <a href="http://www.active.com/more-sports/athens-ga/a2a-30th-anniversary-athens-to-atlanta-road-skate-sponsored-by-k2-2011" title="http://www.active.com/more-sports/athens-ga/a2a-30th-anniversary-athens-to-atlanta-road-skate-sponsored-by-k2-2011">http://www.active.com/more-sports/athens-ga/a2a-30th-anniversary-athens-...</a> </p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>The event is also open to quad skaters!
