Honolulu, Hawai'i. Winter 2009.
It rains every day in Hawai'i. Not in a dark way, and it's rarely a heavy storm, but only twice in a blue moon does a go by on the islands without a gentle, sunny shower briefly passing through in the afternoon. It's never enough rain to ruin our outdoor plans, and it always makes for plenty of rainbows.
We followed this rainbow all over Honolulu one afternoon. The air is clearer over Oahu than it is over Ohio, so there's no smog for the rainbow to get lost in, and little pollution to dull it's colors. We tried to catch it as it hung perpetually in front of us while we drove down the highway, but it was at it's most photogenic at the punchbowl, where it was appropriately patriotic.
Look to the rainbow. Over the rainbow. Why are there so many songs about rainbows?
