A Rainbow Sky—Sunday, October 5, 2014

Sun-2When the storms started to leave our area the sun was underway to waking up the world on the opposite side of us.  The clouds had become ragged and sparse in the West allowing the sun to break free and shine wonderfully upon the land. The East still held the massively dark storm clouds, although they were moving on toward the mountains and the people who lived and worked and played among them.

Rainbow8I was upstairs putting my daily paperwork into a pile and getting ready to turn off the computer when I saw a very faint rainbow filling the east and southern part of our sky! (Close to Olathe)


What a joy I thought to myself!  Gazing out the window I watched it fade to nothing.  Turning off the computer I headed downstairs.

Rainbow-5Wait!!!  What do I see around the Eckert, Cedaredge area?

Rainbow-3 WOW!  I grabbed my camera and headed out the front door to stand on the top step

Rainbow-2What an amazing splash of color!

Rainbow-1It was filling the whole basin with brilliant light!  You can even see some little puffs of clouds captured within the prism ray of sunlight!

I stayed an watched until it faded.  What a pleasure to be able to experience the wonder of sunlight on droplets of water!

Today is Sunday.  Today we stop and rest, only doing those things that are necessary.  Tomorrow we will be back to working on the other house and picking back-up the dropped tasks of the week.  The fields are starting to dry enough the dogs and I will be able to go out and start gathering in the siphon tubes, the plastic dams, and the metal tin dams.  The corn is still green, but if the storms stay away it will continue to dry down taking all the moisture out of the stalks, leaves, and the little seeds.  Once it is dry enough we will begin the last harvest (for us) of the season.

Your friend on a Western Colorado Farm,
