Well, it was forecast for this evening, and for once they got it right.
The skies came over really dark, thunder rumbled in the distance and lightning lit up the sky. We watched the dark clouds go round us just as we had on the marina one late August evening.
I was glad I’d walked the dog half an hour earlier as when the rain hit, it hit hard, fast and heavy. The thunder was loud and the lightning enough to cause us concerns about losing our internet so we unplugged our router.
We could see the dark clouds going out to sea, and the sky came over that strange purply gray colour, so I knew what that meant.
The rainbow this evening was wide and way beyond the roof tops opposite so out at sea.
By the time I got up to get the camera, it was already fading, and must be the fastest one I’ve ever seen.
In less than five minutes, it was all over, and we had bright skies again.
