Photo Op...missed

Never, never, never leave home without a camera!!! And usually, I never do...but I had left it behind after downloading some pictures...and ARRAGHH! I had taken the boys to a pool party earlier this evening that was rained out (but held in the pool house anyway). There was a brief sunny break in the downpour and I said, "ooh, we ought to look for rainbows!" Darned if not just one but TWO popped up - a double rainbow!! The lower one was really intense and bright...the upper one a bit faded. Both fully arched over the lake and at one point split by a streak of lightning. What an awesome sight...and it would have been an awesome photo too. Rats....

I NEVER have my camera when I need it.

Haven't seen a double rainbow in a while. Last time was on the way to the grocery store. I stood in the Harris Teeter parking lot and watched until it faded away. They will you with contentment.

We saw a chunk of a rainbow driving home from a friend's fathers funeral...it was perferctly formed across...but we only saw a partial arc as if it were floating in the sky. I don't remember ever seeing a double.
