One Particularly Good Day

By , June 16, 2012

June 10 was a particularly good day for watching the weather.

It started around 2:00 a.m. when Michelle went outside for a necessary trip, and found the moon rising over the Coast Range.

A round 4:00 a.m., when I got up for the same reason, I found a beautiful red sunrise over the mountains.

That evening, around 8:00, We looked out the window and saw what appeared to be a pillar of yellow smoke in front of The Mountain with No Name. It rapidly became a perfect rainbow. We couldn’t back up far enough to take a photo that would capture all of it. Rain squalls swept quickly up the channel, changing the conditions moment by moment. The rainbow disappeared, only to reappear as a fragment on the water, grow complete, and disappear again. At one point it doubled beautifully. We watched it for an hour.
