There are two natural phenomena to which we had become accustomed in the Southwest but don't occur in Kodiak often: thunderstorms and rainbows. One doesn't think much about them until one suddenly sees it and remembers how we miss them.
Friday we had a double rainbow! It was so spectacular for us that people stopped their cars in the road to look at them. In front of our house kids riding their bikes applied their brakes so firmly that they skidded to a stop as they saw while turning the corner. From their discussion, I must assume they had never seen one before.
Moral: Don't take the simple little things for granted.
