I used to see them often while weekending at Jay.  Funny, I often found
myself driving into the Eastern Townships at night for some reason.  One
night I saw the most amazing display that I sat on the side of the road
leading from Magog to Bolton Centre and watched for a couple of hours, much
like J. and E.  (At least E. was interested - and female: my passenger was a
patroller with a few too many beers who fell asleep during the show...)  It
seemed to ignite the sky, but the way that the colors shimmered it seemed
like a thin, sheer curtain blowing in a gentle breeze.

Last year, Mr. Renson, I seem to recall that you and Graham Cracker were in
a car with us on the very same route and saw some hints of a display during
the pre-Christmas week.  Alas, there was a high overcast that trashed the
performance, but you could still see the yellows through the clouds.
