I'm sure many of you know that here in the Northeast it has been raining almost nonstop for weeks. I have never seen so much rain in my life!! Yesterday after a severe thunderstorm and tornado warnings, about 6:00 the sun came out and there was a beautiful rainbow. It actually got brighter as we watched and then a second one appeared. It was hard to photo the second one but if you look closely, it's there. It was honestly the most gorgeous rainbow I have ever seen! And of course, the pictures don't do it justice. At least there is a bit of beauty in this horrible weather! Now today was a gorgeous day until about 5:30 when out of the blue, the sky opened up and poured inches of rain like I have never seen before. What is going on?!

The double rainbow is gorgeous, you took a great picture. We had a very wet Spring too. It's been many years since I have seen this much rain here in Southern Maryland.

That is beyond gorgeous. I can see the second rainbow as well. Wish we up had had one, it would have made all the rain worthwhile!
Thanks for sharing that!

I love double rainbows. In WA ST we used to get them all the time ... I am from upper MD & this April/May/first half of June were the wettest in decades they say. Poor plants don't know what to do with so much water ... TTFN ~Marydon

Here in NE Pa. we did have a tornado about 20 miles from here. Did damage to some houses & trees & several thousand were without power for a couple of days.
Today is nice but rain is predicted everyday in the afternoon for the next week!
I am rain weary!!
