After almost a week of non-stop rain and a day of thunder, West Hollywood residents received an early Christmas present in the form of a stunning rainbow this afternoon.
Around 4pm the sun broke through the clouds and we were treated to not one, but a double rainbow, like the last time we had thunderstorms.
The colourful arc of light reached up into the Hollywood Hills and looked like it came down somewhere over West Hollywood, or the City of Los Angeles.
I wonder who was lucky to find those pots of gold.
It really was an impressive sight and I wasn't the only one trying to capture its beauty, as all around me people snapped photos with iPhones and cameras alike.
Off to the west in the other direction it even looked like the sun was going to break through the clouds before it set. Sadly that thought was short-lived as the rain has returned.
Tomorrow, the weathermen tell us will be better. I'm tired of getting soaked and having wet shoes, so bring on the sunshine.
I'm not so much fussed about a White Christmas, I just want a sunny one...
