Rainy Days at Thanksgiving

I heard on the radio this morning that this Thanksgiving Day is the first time in 20 years that it has rained on a Thanksgiving Day in Phoenix. How wonderful! Those of us who live in the Sonoran Desert relish the days when the weather is different. Today is no exception!
This was taken on Wednesday, Nov. 26 after the rain showers had moved to the east and the sun came out. I knew there would be a rainbow, but a double rainbow was unexpected! I hope you can see the faint second rainbow to the left of the visible one.It has rained most of the night and finally stopped early this morning. Now that the sun has come out once again, the rain drops on the palo verde tree look like diamonds! What a beautiful morning! I am so thankful I got to see this!
