YAS (Yet Another Sunset)

Once again, I left the office today just as the sun was putting on a great show:

It's been hot and sunny for days. And, days. The clouds finally started rolling in today and threatened us with rain. They were just idle threats. But no matter, the sunset was beautiful.

By the way, see that cross near the lower left edge of the photo? It rests atop the church where MissyJane married PeteyBoy lo those many years ago.

On my way home from the Spoffs' this evening, heading west out of their subdivision, I couldn't help but be awed by the sunset:

It had rained much of the day. There were a couple of very loud claps of thunder. The kids spent much of the afternoon playing in the yard in the rain. They had a ball. That first lightning bolt and clap of thunder sent them scurrying inside faster than you can imagine. The thunderclouds had pretty much cleared out, though, leaving that awesome sunset behind. But as I looped around the subdivision and turned back east, heading home, I saw the fleeing thunderheads:

They looked so billowy and golden. Wow. I had to pull over and take some photos. So, I did. And, suddenly, a rainbow appeared:

Spectacular sunsets and beautiful rainbows. Can't be beat.
