Waiting to Find out if the Swim is On

They close the pool for a half an hour after thunder. Then they reassess whether or not the pool will be open. We had a incredible storm, so I may not swim tonight.

I know this sounds incredible, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a rainbow. Or rather, I haven’t seen one in so many years I can’t remember the last time I saw one. From my roof, a few minutes ago! It’s so big across the whole sky I couldn’t fit the entire arc of the rainbow in … without falling off my roof.
