Been away for some R&R it was a good time.Last night this all happened within 5 minutes. Later the clouds dispersed , it rained a bit and the wind picked up. Taken from the backyard.

One of the nicest rainbows I have seen in awhile



Was not sure I should get my affairs in order or just kiss my a$$ goodbye when I saw this

Run for your life Dave, the end is near for sure.

Thanks Trev it was a short lived sight but cool to see and thankful it did not amount to anything.

Thanks Bob it was one of the brightest rainbows I have seen and when digitally manipulated a bit it pops even more.

Thanks kerrowdown - we can get these when it gets abnormally warm here (28C or higher) - it usually amounts to nothing but back in 1987 we had a tornado touch down in the city causing $evere damage and 23 or so lost their lives.
