I have seen more rainbows in our 21 months out here than I have in all my previous years combined. Probably twice as many. God's little reminder to smile through the rain, that He is always right there, all the time.
This is also the view from our front window. Low, tiny, old-ish houses and windswept trees dominate residential areas around here. People walk past our house constantly, too, which was unsettling at first but I've come to accept as some part of the culture here. Not yuppy fitness walking, just people of all conditions getting where they need to go. I admire them, especially when it's raining.
