FIRST SUMMER STORM First summer rainbow

Have a good Memorial Day Weekend and don't forget why we have this holiday. Anyway, Mother Nature sent us a gift this afternoon: our first thunderstorm this year.

Just like in real life, it gets very dark and lightning flashes, the thunder rolls.
But it is late afternoon and under the skirts of the storm, the sun peeks through and shines on the trees on the low mountains.
And a rainbow appears, even as the lightning still flashes further away, the rainbow grows brighter and soon arcs across the sky and the birds begin to sing again and the trees glow, each leaf alight. This is Nature. Fearful yet beautiful. Life springing anew.
