Christmas Eve Rainbow

We’ve had a couple of days of decent, much-needed rain here, a bit over 3″. Given that our total for last year was only 5.38″ with annual averages of only 16.41″, that’s a good chunk of our seasonal allocation.

Today was calmer with scattered showers around, and tomorrow we’re expected to get the next big round. But scattered showers sometime mean scattered sun, and when they mix:

I’ll take helpful signs and colorful reminders that there’s good to be found in the world. I’ll take all we can get.

Merry Christmas Eve, y’all. Let’s hope that Christmas Day gives us a successful launch of JWST (in about four hours) on an ESA Ariane-5 rocket (yes, I’ll be trying to get up to watch). Let’s hope that the last week of 2021 and all of 2022 are better than 2021 and 2020 were.

Get vaccinated. Mask up. Stay socially distanced.

Let’s be smart and stay alive, folks. We’ve got a lot of great things to live for and wonderful rainbows to see in the future, both the near future and the far distant future.
