rainbows

Post by Sandra »

Don't know where else to put it.

The rain has been pouring down for day now and I've been soaked loads of times, there is still no sign of bea's ark :roll:

Anyways, I've seen loads of rainbows recently, they all differ from one another, each one is lovely. What causes a rainboe and why does a one appear after a heavy bout of rain?

sugar..the ark is coming. Its currently being pimped out with hot tubs and poles and mirrored ceilings (and the monkeys are being trained as butlers but they taking a while to convince that its a good idea)

I love rainbows. They occue when the sun shines onto to droplets of moisture in the atmosphere (cheers wiki!)

Whist finding out the above info I came across a v cool site - check it here - http://www.atoptics.co.uk/bows.htm

It's so cool when you can see the full arch. Rainbows are lovely, my grandma (who had been very angry with me) once instantly forgave me at the sight of one... I think I could use them on my side more often!
