Rain means rainbows

We have had a heck of a lot of water fall from the sky in the last couple of weeks as I mentioned in this post. From the remains of a tropical cyclone to anomalous lows moving in from the west to convective thunderstorms it has been a nonstop parade of rainmakers. I wanted to share some photos of some of the weather I saw at Stratford Point while attempting to conduct waterfowl surveys without getting too wet or being threatened by lightning.

You can see a nice rainbow in this shot looking to the south.

This is looking east into Long Island Sound as a rainbow attempts to brighten - you can even see what's at the end! Here's a hint - more water.

Lastly this thunderstorm was coming in from the north near sunset creating a lovely shade in the sky.

How much more can we get? In our state of extremes I do not know. Let's hope that one tropical event was it for the entire year.
