Photo: A Beautiful Rainbow Appeared in Concord During the Bomb Cyclone

The last few weeks have seen a lot of doom and gloom in the Bay Area. We’ve been slammed by epic rainstorms and some of the worst flooding in years.

If you read the news about California from other places in the country, things sound even worse. You’d think that all of California was inundated under some kind of biblical flood.

Amidst all that, Concord, California was treated to a surprise yesterday. In the midst of the storm, and as the city’s Walnut Creek turned into a raging torrent, a beautiful rainbow appeared above the city.

The rainbow appeared to be a full rainbow, extending in a complete arc across the sky.

The rainbow stuck around for about 20 minutes, and then the darkness came back. But for Concord residents who happened to be looking towards the sky, the rainbow provided a pleasant respite from an otherwise challenging weather week.
