Slo-mo Sunday


“The moonbow framed the lightning nicely–a rare and beautiful coincidence,” says Glendinning.

Everyone knows what lightning is. But a moonbow? It’s the same as a rainbow with the Moon playing the role of Sun. Raindrops falling in the Northumberland night caught the rays of the waxing full Moon and spread them into a fan of prismatic color.

Glendinning’s exposure revealed something even more rare: a secondary moonbow. It’s the faint ‘bow arciing above the brighter primary. Primary rainbows are caused by single reflections inside raindrops; secondary bows are caused by double reflections. Watch for them both this weekend.

    Steady downpour all last night continuing this morning, sleepy weather, think I’ll go hibernate for a while. 💡

    The rain is dripping out of the exhaust fan in the bathroom, 😦
    Put a kitty poop box over the vent cover on the roof with a brick on top.
    Temp fix till the rain quits.
    I made a special effort to make sure everything was sealed up top a month ago, I evidently missed something there.

    Decided to go to the Old Post Office for my Sunday salmon. To my pleasant surprise, there is a limited wine menu. Swilly’s it ain’t but Joan’s it is. Even the background music has improved.

    22 minutes of stick walking.

      Return the same route, flat then up College Hill Climb and Maple Street Extension, where I resisted the temptation to pause, all in 24 minutes of stick walking.

      Day 1: 22+24=46 minutes.
