Freaky weather this afternoon. I was driving down Rt. 1 from Arlington into Alexandria and admiring the pretty blue sky. Suddenly, rain was falling gently around me, and I noticed one gray cloud that hung directly over Alexandria. The gentle shower turned into Niagara Falls, and it poured so hard that some of the streets flooded. At the same time, as I drove through the pouring rain, I needed my sunglasses because the sun shone so brightly. Then a huge, lovely rainbow arched across the Eastern sky, the best one I've ever seen outside of Hawaii. The rain stopped soon afterward, and now we have a calm, pleasant evening. And a pretty blue sky.
