Storm's A-Brewing'

The weather forecast this morning says a storm is coming. In just a couple of hours it will 'hit' the Oregon Coast and it will be here in the Valley about 2 hours later. Heavy rain and high winds. It has been raining for several days. At times it has been like buckets of water were being poured down on us. I looked out the front window a couple of days ago and saw this. (Can you see the rain pouring down?) Then I looked out my kitchen window into the back yard. The sun was shining and this is what I saw.How can that happen? My little ranch-style home is only 2 rooms deep. There is not much distance between the front and back yards. How can it be raining so hard on one side of my house while there is sunshine on the other side? It isn't the first time this has happened - it probably won't be the last.

  2. The rainbow is beautiful.

    It's amazing how it can be raining on one side of the road (or in this case, house) and not raining on the other side.

    I enjoyed your photos. I will stop by again soon.

  3. Amazing rainbow photograph, I love catching something so ethereal on film:>) I got this explanation online:"It is seen usually in the sky opposite to the sun at the close of a shower "

  4. It's always astounding to us when it's pouring down rain on our deck out back, yet we can see that it's dry on the driveway out our front windows! How can it be? So wonderful that you were able to get a photo of the rainbow. Love when that happens! Thanks for sharing ~ Patricia
