Rainbow Roundup

What had to be one of the most well-documented NOLA weather phenomena since the great snowfall of December 11, 2008, occurred yesterday as a double rainbow stretched over New Orleans during rush hour. I would have not seen it had not a disaster brought me across the lake earlier in the afternoon. Without going into details, I had brought my sister to Walmart on Tchoupatoulas to get her glasses, a victim of the day’s earlier disaster, fixed. Walking out the door we saw this:

About five other people stopped in their tracks coming out of the store, whipping out their phones to document the brief-lived wonder.

Later, I noticed a lot of Twitter activity and decided to round up all the photos I could find. The pics link back to their original posts. Thanks everyone!

I wish I had taken this one, the winner if this were actually a contest, from @mattjparks, Rainbow Over Dome (my title):

Here’s the French Quarter view, from @LunaNola, @CallMeAlva and @winshuttle:

And downtown from @BrittanyHornets:

    My stars. I never thought I’d see the day you’d blog about rainbows. On the other hand, a DOUBLE rainbow is way awesome!
