Slo-mo Sunday

1a

“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.

    • David B. Benson says:

      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.
