Sunset Double Rainbow

Mother Nature ended the day peacefully after she was done dumping cold water on us all Sunday. The weather had been (yes I'm one of those people who constantly talk about the weather now) fantabulous all week and then rain and gloom. But wait, how about this sunset double rainbow?
It was 76 and now apparently it's winter so enjoy the sky and dig out your winter boots.
Someone was talking about snow at the Hy-Vee bakery today. I almost punched him.
Millenial Pastry Clerk: "It was snowing when I came in, but that's okay, I like snow."
Me: ~Thwarp~

By way of apology for today's weather and the upcoming five months

Forget the pot of gold just find me a blanket

I'm calling that spot behind the clouds, "The Moon" rather than a raindrop stain on the lens

  1. He, he, I could relate to this weather post. I too dread the long months ahead until Spring returns. You have a beautiful sky though. It's stunning.

    1. A 75˚ blizzard is better than another hurricane. I'm more of a sixties and sunny person and today was ab fab.

  9. Beautiful -- and talking about a rainbow doesn't count as talking about the weather. Especially this magical one. I am glad to hear from someone else who doesn't love snow and cold though... so talk away. (and come to Florida when you can; that's our winter solution ... of course you have to be old like us (()

    1. I hated it most of my life, liked it for a tic when I was xcountry skiing and ice skating and sledding then back to blech. Besides, I can't find decent boots to fit these honkin' big feet. I'm not so sure I'd consider you old but I seem to be sledding rapidly in that direction. My idea of heaven is 60s and sunny. The temp, not the decade.

    2. I love and need sunshine and light! Our youngest son and DIL moved to Colorado because it’s almost always sunny. But not always 60. They love it. I always wonder if I would have liked winter better if we’d always lived somewhere like that (or Wisconsin) instead of gray damp drippy Oregon. You don’t have to shovel the rain, but it sure gets miserable.

  10. We used to live in Mammoth Lakes California...a ski resort...so I totally get your obsession about the weather! Mammoth had snow three times in September this year...early even for Mammoth...when I lived there we had snow on the ground from October until June or July... Yuck!!! We moved back to Sunny Southern California and are now experiencing a heat wave! 100* temps!!! Another yuck...but not as yucky as snow in June!!!

    1. Wow, it was actually too hot for me the last few months. Until June or July, I hope you were a skier cuz that sh*t's nuts. Yeah, Game 1 in the WS broke records at 103, dang. I'm torn as to which is worse. Guess I'd begrudgingly go with snow in June.

  12. Only once I have seen a double rainbow -so amazing! Ugh, am not ready for cold weather, and last week it got to the 40ties in the evening, so we put on the wood stove:(
    Where they had that art talk is where I used to live, 7 hours down south, so I didn't go there. Yes it was an honor. Heard that the artist who presented that painting just read what I had emailed her. (Am used to do presentations, so it went well, she said).
    The study in psychology was the reason we came to the States, because the programs here prepares one much better for practicing in the counseling room. Thanks for being interested:)

    1. It looked much better in person but was a cool surprise. I like it cooler but we went from 76 to 44 in the blink of an eye. It shouldn't keep surprising me it gets that cold down by you. Oh yeah way too far away but impressive you can drive 7 hours and still be in CA. Sounds like a difficult but rewarding field.

  13. Wow, that's beautiful! And I love the purple-pink sky. LOL at your "moon" capture!

    1. I bet most people wouldn't even notice it but I choose to turn raindrops into lemonade or something. Still amazed you're okay, relatively and hope the ankle is healing quickly.

  14. Hi there! Thanks so much for your comment today. I came here to check your blog. I like what I see, and I'm staying. Some people describe the weather where I live as boring. That's okay by me. I can see snow in the mountains, and if I want to be in snow, I can get there in less than two hours. Loved your humor under the last photo.

    1. You're pretty talented there, Pat and thanks for the compliment. It's actually supposed to be a humor blog but I'm afraid that's not always clear. Mountains that can be utilized when wanted sounds perfect. I thought I saw snow on the skylight this morning and didn't get out of bed until the cat got ornery about me buried in the covers all morning.

  16. Hi Jeanna, I think that Mother Nature can be forgiven if she blesses you with that sight at the end of the day! Beautiful!
