The monsoon has been good to us, rainwise, this year. It's been pouring here during the last hour. I would imagine there will be some flash flooding in the area but if people drive sensibly that shouldn't be a problem. And as the other day, here's what we'll have to look forward to once the rain stops and the sun peaks through the clouds once again.

I took this picture in our alley on Friday, which is garbage collection day, hence the rubber dumpsters cluttering up the view.

It's always nice to see a rainbow, even though that old Irish myth about a pot of gold at the end of one hasn't come true for me yet.


  1. And this was at 8 AM? Good shot! As monsoon continues there will be many photo ops of double rainbows. I have to say I've never seen one to the west like this. Usually NE in the evening.

  2. Maybe it will rain Skittles, and you can taste the rainbow.

  3. There's something magical and uplifting about rainbows. Great pic.

  4. I note upon reading this it's 65f here, and rather warmer there. But we could dearly use the rain. We banned fireworks in the town for the first time in memory.

  5. Our backyard was flooded and looked like a lake! Nice and cool this morning though.
