Rainbow weather

rainbow

There's a pot of gold out there. Somewhere.

Yesterday's late afternoon rain showers -- and subsequent break in the clouds -- produced a bumper crop of rainbows around the Capital Region.

The local Twitter stream yesterday was full of rainbow sightings -- over the ESP, at RPI, over the county court building in Albany, on Henry Johnson, in Delmar, at Stuyvesant Plaza (a full double arc), at Crossgates, at Colonie Center, and over Central Warehouse.

Barry took the photo above at UAlbany. You can just make out the double rainbow in the upper left corner.

(Thanks, Barry!)

I caught my first rainbow photo on the way home - shot it from South Lake Avenue, toward the intersection of Central Avenue and North Lake. Notice that the base of the rainbow goes into the Holy Family Parish.

Beautiful!

Just posted some rainbows this morning here: http://melodic.posterous.com/rainbow-bright-0

Gorgeous! I don't have a photo to share but I captured a beautiful one with my eyeballs over the Albany Academy yesterday.

We had some on Sunday too. Two days of rainbows!

Was riding up in the Helderbergs yesterday afternoon/evening, epic rainbows on the overlook above the Altamont fairgrounds (then right afterward, an epic down pour followed by 1 more rainbows!).

Some of us have a pretty good idea of who was behind all the rainbows. And I think at least one AoA staffer knows who I'm talking about...

I got one with my Blackberry (which I posted to Facebook, but not Twitter) over the "dog park" in Washington Park. This picture you posted here, however, is spectacular. I love my BB Curve, but the camera leaves quite a bit to be desired.

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind.

I frequently find myself along this trail on Sunday mornings, hungry, & very little is open. There's a lot of talk about special mowers & building bathrooms & that's nice, yes, let's do that, certainly. But *right now* people using this trail are hungry & want to buy food & drink (& use the bathroom, as a paying customer): if the businesses that are already there were OPEN it would go a long way to providing amenities & destinations. ...
