Bright Lights, Puffy Clouds And A Rainbow...Far Out Man!

Oh, I was on a small day trip, but not one that would conjur up the image of the sixties and Timothy Leary. Yesterday we were having a nasty Bright Light, Puffy Clouds And A Rainbow...Far Out Man!rainy day here in the Portland area and I picked up my clients and went for a nice drive to go see a home towards the coast about an hour and a half dive away. Now, I don't normally do this, but these are past clients and fun to boot..so not a hardship.

On the way home the rain was really coming down hard enough where most drivers were going a slow 40 mph on highway 26 and even my range rover (ok, borrowed hubby's car) was hydroplaning After driving for well over an hour and a bit wet from walking the property in the rain, I was looking to get home and have a nice cup of coffee.

Suddenly, as we were approaching downtown Portland, there were puffy clouds and a sunbeam was shining brightly through them. This gorgeous rainbow just seemed to appear out of nowhere to brighten up the dismal rainy day. Bright Lights, Puffy Clouds And A Rainbow...Far Out Man!

Now, I was still driving and taking in this beautiful site when a text came through on my phone from my hubby who had taken the picture for me from our floating home on the Columbia River knowing I would love it! You might have heard that it can rain in Portland in the winter, but typically there are peeks of sun that do happen during the day and when this happens, it's lovely and well appreciated! Hey..it could be worse and be snow!

yes, it could be worse.  Recovering from an ice storm and long long long power outage down in the southeast.  And that's not supposed to happen. Spring can't get here soon enough for me.

Hi Tammy, so I wrote this Sunday evening and a few hours later my power went out due to heavy winds and a power line hanging in front of my house. So just ONE morning of it was difficult so going through it for a while is VERY hard. Spring..yep, I'm ready!

Hi Lottie...Hmmm, my guess is a LONG time ago unless it was on TV.

What a Portlandia moment you had Cindy Lou. Lol. I love it when we get those little moments of weather hope...a rainbow always reminds me to "hang in there."
