Oh The Lord Is Good To Me...

I woke up at about 5 this morning to a raging thunderstorm. I unplugged the computers and fell back asleep. I woke up next at 7 am, way too late to get G to the school bus on time. So we got dressed and headed off to school. When I got outside, I found that my rain buckets, which were empty last night, had maybe 6 to 8 inches of water in them. I checked my rain gauge and it showed that we'd gotten about an inch of rain.

As we headed down MoPac I could see a dim wannabe rainbow that got brighter and more defined as we drove south until it was a complete arc with the most vivid colors I've ever seen in a rainbow. It was beautiful.

So we talked about the story of Noah and the dove and the rainbow and what they symbolized. I got G to school about two minutes late and headed back up MoPac. The rainbow was gone, and it was pouring down rain out of a mostly blue sky. It wasn't dark and gray, so visibility was good. The drive home was easy and it was nice to see how green the grass and the trees are getting. It's been so dry for so long. This rain is so nice.
