After the flood, the rainbow; in some places, times two

Rainbow over Uphams Corner

After the overnight torrents, we got another mini-torrent this afternoon, followed by a rainbow that water-weary Bostonians rushed out to see. Danny in Boston shows us the double rainbow over Uphams Corner in Dorchester.

Paul Kafsis watched it over the bocce courts and ball fields along the inner harbor in the North End:

On the other side of the harbor, Chris Briggs was among the people who had a good look even as they stayed dry at a Logan restaurant:

James Tyler had a chance to study that phenomenon where they area under a rainbow (in this case, a double 'bow) is brighter than the sky outside it, at the Land Rover dealership in Norwood:

PonderStibbons looked up from Brigham and Women's at the double rainbow:

Matt Frank watched the rainbow and the clouds gliding over Chelsea City Hall:

I think my favorite is the Logan restaurant one! There's just something about it

Although it looks like the guy in the light blue shirt is ignoring the rainbows and instead pondering if the door plugs on the jet were installed correctly.

I knew someone was going to be bowed up!

We had golden puffy pinkish billowing clouds that looked like 14karat cotton candy and very much deserved an angel choir and cherubs, but no bows. The sun angles this time of year put them behind our sight lines.
