It was freakishly windy today so we went to look at the lake because that is what you do in Buffalo when there is weather. It was pretty cool because the water was crashing up over the breakwall. In the car I found a giant tick on Oscar. I don't know where he got it but it confirms the one thing I knew about Virginia before I moved there, which is that it is completely crawling with disgusting ticks. I got a little plastic thing at the pet store that works really well for extracting them, though.
