Follow the Rainbow


This evening, which was crystal clear at 6:00 pm, we went down to the Sterling town common for the weekly concert. The concerts are essentially background music. While there are some folks who actually sit and listen to the music, most of the crowd are young families. The kids run around the field in front of the stage playing ball or dancing while the parents all sit together and shoot the breeze.

During intermission, a downpour passed through, dropping about an inch of water in 15 or 20 minutes and ruining countless picnics. We were completely and thoroughly soaked through. Jackson got a little freaked out because everyone was running around shrieking, trying to cover up in a futile attempt to stay dry. Normally he enjoys the rain; I think he got worked up because the rest of us were.

The quick shower left behind a fairly vivid rainbow, which remained in the sky for a good 15 minutes or so. Once the rain stopped, we left the concert and headed back home to dry off. The rainbow was still visible from our front yard, so I grabbed my camera to take a couple of pics.
