God's handiwork....A Fire Rainbow!


A Fire Rainbow - The rarest of all naturally occurring atmospheric phenomena. The picture was captured this week on the Idaho / Washington border, the event lasted about one hour. Clouds have to be cirrus, at least 20k feet in altitude, with just the right amount of ice crystals and the sun has to hit the clouds at precisely 58 degrees. Stunning!

Lisa,
That is beautiful!!
Hope you have a good day my friend.
I didn't sleep all night Tuesday, went to bed at 1am, tossed and turned and alarm off at 6:30
Felt like hell all day yesterday.  Came from work with pounding headache, til I went to bed at 10pm, couldn't sleep again...fell asleeep finally after 2:30, maybe got 4 hours in 2 days.
Sorry to rant!!!  Too much information??  
I have some stress going on Today and the next week.  Visitor from out of town...
This is probably the cause.
Hope you got a good sleep.
Hope your day goes well.
Love,
Donna
