    I ALSO got the amazing rainbow… I posted one picture this morning and am showing more and a video of it on a post tomorrow. It was unreal. Breathtaking.

    Did you hit the Planet Earth Celebration in Raleigh early? I was busting to see The Rosebuds and ended up missing them anyhow. I’m hoping the first half of the event was far better than the last two hours, which really bummed me out actually. I’d love to hear your wrap-up if you went. 🙂 Ashley Sue
