As you may remember, I traveled to Arlington Texas for a couple of Rangers baseball games last month. Upon exiting the ballpark after the game I saw on September 11th, a rather weird “storm” kicked up. It was mostly just dark clouds, wind and some rain mixed in with an occasional rumble of thunder… but since I had walked to the park from my hotel a mile up the road, I had to wait out whatever it was that was passing through the area. When it cleared out enough for this lightningphobe to feel safe enough to continue on, I noticed an oddity in the sky. I was actually looking for a rainbow, since the sun had come back out before the rain even stopped, but was quite surprised to see just a little chunk of a rainbow appearing above me!
You can just make out the small section of rainbow that was visible in the picture above (It was a bit brighter in actuality). I can’t recall having ever seen a rainbow in the sky with so little of it actually appearing. It reminded me of the little prism my Granny used to have hanging in her living room window, and how the sun would shine through it and cast many little rainbows all over the room. It absolutely fascinated me and my sisters when we were little, and we’d spin the hanging bauble around to make the rainbows move.
Yes, I know what you’re thinking…. this picture could use a little Rainbow Donkey. Happy to oblige….
Have a bright and colorful weekend!
