After the Storm

It's been a crazy weather week here in southwest Ohio, as it has for much of the country.  Thunderstorms, high winds, baseball size hail, and almost nightly tornado warnings (with luckily, only a few minor touchdowns).  And rain.  Lots and lots of rain.  But this evening, after the last storm had rolled through, we had this...

If you look closely, you can see a second fainter rainbow to the right of the brighter one.  At this point the rainbow only extended from the top of the trees up to where it fades out in the picture above.

As I watched it, the top arc formed (picture above) and began to descend on the left side (below).

Then offered this beautiful finale.

Have a wonderful weekend.

I'm Currently Enjoying: Suspense and Sensibility by Carrie Bebris

Groaner of the Day: The carnival was in town at Nottingham, so Robin Hood told the boys they could go in and have some fun.

There were lots of games and at one booth, you could win a prize by hitting a ten cent silver coin with a lance thrown from twenty paces.

As Friar Tuck was passing the booth, the guy running the game called out to him: "Hey,Brother, can you spear a dime?"

I love rainbows. I don't know why but they always make me feel so hopeful.

Maria - My friend, Grumpy, called from her cell phone (they were out and about) to alert me to this one. I always think a rainbow is worth stopping whatever and going outside to look. A litle gift from God.

Those are gorgeous photos! I don't see many living in the desert. Only when there's moisture in the air, which isn't often.

P.S. (Your comment on my post today). My dad served in the South Pacific too. Those big ships transported a lot of soldiers. Who knows? Maybe our Dads crossed paths. :-) Have a great weekend!
