Finding the Rainbow during the Storm

Double Rainbow
Although I could have considered the evening to be a washout as the storms arrived, it was not. During dinner, as the rain fell, I noticed that sun was shining. I decided to look up at the sky and was rewarded with a beautiful rainbow and then--as double rainbow. I had to do a lot of processing to make the second rainbow visible in the photo I took--but it is there.

Every day brings its share of challenges and rewards. Sometimes, like the mythical pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, we just have to search for the up side.

Consider the June automobile accident that I was involved in which resulted in the loss of one vehicle. It was definitely not a good experience but there were a few upsides: no one was injured and after a lot of work the vehicle was replaced something new which will last for many more years.

Similarly, rainstorms can cause destruction and damage--but they also bring the rains which nourish and refresh the land.

Often, during the storms, there are some spectacular sights--like the gathering storm clouds surrounding the iconic Jupiter Lighthouse.

I just need to look to see.
