There's a thunderstorm rolling through southeast Michigan this morning, so I thought I'd offer up a rainbow. We won't see one in Michigan today, as Midwestern clouds tend to fill the skies for hundreds of miles without a gap. Western skies have more breaks in the clouds and they get rewarded with more frequent rainbows.
In Sunday School, I was taught that the rainbow is God's promise never again to destroy the world through a global flood. In Wyoming, it can also be taken as a taunt that you're lucky to be getting any rain at all.
