Featuring my first TypePad posting from August 12, 2004
Something so extraordinary happened a few minutes ago that I just must tell everyone about it--I found the end of a rainbow. Walking toward the kitchen from my den (puts me facing southeast), I could see out the sliding glass door into the back yard. I could see no sky as the view was cut off by the door frame at just below line of the trees that bound the creek--approximately 300 feet from the door. What I could see was an extremely fine, light rain coming down, and a portion of a rainbow in our back yard!!!! As I reached the door and looked upward, lo and behold, there was the rest of the rainbow--up in the sky. The rainbow was so brilliant that there were two extra bands on the inner radius and (at some distance) a whole reflected rainbow outside the outer radius. Dorothy learned that happiness is in your own back yard. I learned that the end of the rainbow is in our back yard. (Hunky Husband, just in from golf demands to know what I did with the pot of gold!)
I didn't expect the photos to be as pretty as the real thing did I? At least, not with my level of photographic skill and available camera!
