When it rains, it pours!

This afternoon we had a rain storm that took us right back to Kauai.  One moment it was overcast with a few sprinkles, then it started raining a bit harder.  Then harder.  Then HARDER.

Big rain with big splashes.

Big rain with big rainbows~ a double for a short time. 

The photo isn't grainy or smudged~ it's the rain!  It was beautiful.  The storm moved so quickly that the sun came out, creating the rainbow.  The sun rays hit the raindrops in such a unique way, it looked like bits of glass were falling from the sky.  I've never witnessed anything like it.  On one side of the sky was the above picture, on the other, the picture below.

I love the rain- it's one of the things I miss most about Kauai.  This little storm took me right back to our little place in Lawai.  Hopefully we'll make it back there soon to visit our friends and favorite places.
