Rainbows and Social Media

Posted on Wednesday, October 15th, 2014 at 10:58 pm

There was this crazy rainbow in the sky this morning while we were getting our day started. I’ve got to confess tho; I didn’t know it was there until I saw about 7 photos of it on Facebook from various people in their respective locations around town.

I slagged about it a little on Twitter, and then ran out to see if it was still there so I could get a picture of it.

We don’t get rainbows a lot in the mornings. Most of the rain happens in the afternoon and then the storm has to be in just the right place before the sunlight can hit the droplets and scatter off into the sky in gradients of color.

I guess that’s why people stop and take a picture and share it online… even tho most of their friends are already there to see it and are probably posting pictures of it too. It’s a rare, beautiful thing that still grabs our attention.

Rainbow pictures and lolcats give me hope for humanity.
