Follow the rainbow
A pot of gold awaits

Sometimes in south Florida …

You simply have to ignore the month.

Looking north towards I-75 Alligator Alley

Technically speaking, we should be bearing down (and scarfing up) in preparation for a deep polar freeze (or two). Well, at least not yet. So far this December, the weather has been closer to the hot and humid summer pattern of pop-up showers and copious morning fog. How thick is that fog? Thick enough to make pea soup seem transparently thin. The commute ride into work, for those that have been doing it, has been a white knuckle ride with 300 ft visibility. On the good side, there’s the mid afternoon rainbow as seen above. At 1,000 feet above the ground, the air temperature is also delightfully cool.

Seize the rainbow

As a meteorological phenomena …

Rainbows never cease to amaze.

Here one minute

But you better look quick, because they do disappear

Less than a minute after taking the photo above …

Gone the next

The rainbow was gone.
