A post from Kelli–
The past few days, the weather in Iowa has been all over. While rain is important for the crops, it’s important that it comes at certain times and in smaller amounts–Not 1″ at a time in a very short period of time. The past few days have been kind of weird that it’ll be nice and sunny and then 20 minutes later, the clouds start rolling in and it’s downpouring. It’ll downpour for 30 minutes and then it’s bright and sunny again. That happened twice yesterday. It was really strange.
After the second time, I was sitting in the kitchen and thought that if there was ever a day for a rainbow, today would be it. About 2 minutes later, Jason stopped in the house and told me to come outside. This is what we saw–
Not just a single rainbow, but a double! And it was so large, I couldn’t even get the whole rainbow in one picture.
We were joking that we should probably go searching for the pot of gold because it was probably in our woods somewhere! Later I was going to make a run over to Jason’s Aunt Julie and Uncle Randy’s house to pick up a little sewing table for my sewing room upstairs and this is what I saw on the top of our hill.
Once I got over to their house which is just a few miles away, I saw this one–
While the pictures look good and all, they no where near show how beautiful it really was!
It’s times like these that I feel so happy to live out in the country where I can see the sunset and rainbows–Because according to the legend of rainbows, this day will never be here again!
