Spring Storm and Sunset

A couple sometimes under-appreciated things about living in the flatlands are storm clouds and sunsets. Tonight we were at the Complex for soccer practice when a light rain fell for about two minutes. There are numerous playgrounds scattered throughout the park, and I had the younger kids at one of them while the older kids practiced with their team. As the rain began to fall I rushed the younger kids to the van only to have the rain stop and the sun burst forth from below the clouds as it set. For a few minutes it brightly lit up the fields and produced a beautiful rainbow.
