I noticed around sunset, while it was still sunny, that dark gray rainclouds were on the horizon and the wind was whipping up when I looked out our dining room window from our second-floor condo. I checked again a few minutes later and the rainbow appeared. I took the picture from the front door landing. The rainbow lingered for a long while, as it was still sunny in the west and lighting up the mobile homes across the street. The rainbow seems to be touching the roof of one of the mobile homes. After about 10 lr 15 minutes, the rain arrived.
