Saturday Evening Rainbows

Posted in Home, Stormy Skies by leahyetter on July 10, 2010

I raced inside before the storm clobbered the house. Patrick was driving a tractor over from the South Ranch and made it in a little over an hour. It was still sprinkling so I went out to meet him at the shop and drive him home when I gasped, probably swallowed a bug or something.  But there it was, a beautiful and vibrant rainbow. Then I realized it was a double rainbow. The further I drove, I could see it from one end to the other.

I sped past him and the shop yelling,” look at the rainbows! I’ll be right back!”

I didn’t go looking for a pot of gold or anything. It was a treasure in itself to sit and watch the clouds move out and the rainbow fade away. This was my kind of Saturday evening.

    Oh my gosh, Leah. This is so funny – I just got through watching this HILARIOUS video of some silly hippie having his OWN experience with a double rainbow!! You HAVE to watch it the whole way through. YOU are gonna laugh your butt off…

      Hilarious! The remix is great too! My experience wasn’t quite that dramatic. Probably because i was choking on a bug but it was very vibrant and a beautiful sight to behold. 🙂

    PS: I like it in the video when he says “It’s starting to look like a triple rainbow!” (I bet it is) and “What does this mean?” (It’s the aliens trying to communicate with you, stoner.)
