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.

I don't understand how people give such leeway to expensive highway boondoggles like this one as compared to the scrutiny the Albany Skyway project is receiving. Sure, there's certainly things to criticize with the Skyway project, but this project appears to save drivers 30 seconds on their way to the Airport at the cost of $50 million dollars! How is this not receiving five times the scrutiny and outrage that the skyway project is receiving?!? Imagine how much good we could do if that $50 million were spent in the City of Albany...
