Fourth Double Rainbow of the year

Monday, Sep 2, 2019
Seems to be the theme of the year. Last year it was just rain every day and flooding but this year its been scattered thunderstorms and rainbows. September Second we had the typical passing storm of the year and sure enough timing and sun angle were right for another rainbow. Not only that but it was a double rainbow yet again. Fourth time this year that has happened. I don’t think I’ve seen four double rainbows in my life before this summer let alone in one few month period.

August Eighteenth, The Third Double Rainbow Of The Year.

Sunday, Aug 18, 2019
We had a pretty good thunderstorm this evening. It really poured for a little bit and I think there may have even been some small hail mixed in. Being late in the evening the sun was pretty low and stayed out while it poured. I figured there might be a rainbow so of course went outside to check for one. There was indeed one and it was a very bright one at that and then the second outer one.

Another Double Rainbow, The Second One Within A Week.

We had scattered thunderstorms pop up today and while it didn’t rain much if at all here the storm was to our east and the sun was the right angle to give is a rainbow. I saw it out the window so I went to a nearby open area to see if I could see one. Sure enough there was not only one but a double rainbow. This is the second double rainbow we’ve had within a few days.

We Were Driving Home And Saw Another Rainbow

Tuesday, Aug 6, 2019
A small shower popped up just to our south this evening and never produced anything for us. The cloud itself couldn’t have been very big at all and didn’t look like it was even producing rain. It was dumping rain for sure though. We were driving through the back streets taking a shortcut through Mount Joy when we saw this very bright rainbow. We were able to pull over and I got out of the car to take a picture with my phone.

Double Rainbow in Mount Joy

Saturday, Aug 3, 2019
We had some heavy rain then the sun came out while it was still raining so of course I thought to look for a rainbow. Not only was their a rainbow but there was a double rainbow! Haven’t seen one of those around here in a year or two if I am remembering correctly. It’s very cool to just enjoy natures show sometimes. Well all the time its worth it to stop and look and what nature provides for free.

Earthquake Real Close To Home

Wow… I don’t know if it woke me up or I was awake but I heard a deep rumbling and thought that sounds like an earthquake. Well I got up and went on the computer and checked Millersville’s real time seismic data.. Something showed up.. So maybe it wasn’t my imagination. Checked USGS’s earthquake site and they showed a confirmed 3.3 earthquake just north of Mountville, pa Pretty cool! Here’s info for the [“Magnitude 3.

Chicken Pot Pie For Supper

Friday, Feb 23, 2007
We’re having chicken pot pie for supper today. Not the stuff you get in the store. The Amish kind with the home made noodles. If you’ve never had it you have to try it. It’s starting to smell good. I really do like Molly’s pot pie better than the store bought kind even though I like that too. It’s interesting how they are completely different things but have the same name.
