Sometimes, there are rainbows...


It was cool and drizzling when I left my class this evening.  

Then I got stopped by the train on the walk to my car.  

As I stood there shivering, I noticed what looked orange glints of light reflecting off the train.  

I turned around and looked to the west and saw a spectacular sunset.  

I had been walking east in the rain and it was completely gloomy, but all I had to do was turn around to see that the sun was out of the clouds and that the sky looked like it was on fire.  

I turned around again to check on the progress of the train when I noticed the double rainbow in the sky.

I pointed out the rainbow to some other people waiting on the train and we all stood in admiration.  Then the train passed and we all continued on our way.

I got to my car slightly damp, chilled, and ten minutes later than usual, and I didn't mind at all.  I would have missed the beauty if it hadn't been for the train forcing me to slow down, and just look.
