Rainbow Colored Camouflage

Being a storm chaser I look out for all kinds of weather,
with one particular severe thunderstorm hitting a town
about 2 hours drive away from where I live…By the time 
I was half way there the weather station called me to inform
me to brace myself when I get to the town because of 
the devastation and that I'd be driving in remnants of
the storm. They were right because the sky just opened
up with rain, hail and straight line winds hitting my van 
from all directions…the tornado threat was just a watch
and not a warning anymore so I did continue to be on
the lookout. By the time I got to the town alls I could see
in the sky was a beautiful rainbow from one side of the 
small town to the other. Driving closer and getting into
the interior of the town was a different story as I could
see the destruction of what was left of the small town
from the tornado. It was leveled. Thank God everyone
in town went to the tornado shelter and survived I'm
happy to say. After spending several hours there helping
out as much as I could with the Red Cross I got in my
vehicle to drive to the next town and get a room for the
night so I could go back in the morning to help some
more. That night in the hotel room I couldn't get the
beautiful rainbow out of mind and how it camouflaged
the violent storm that had just been there moments

Good story, Cheryl - I am sure this will be one of the most, if not *the most* real-life tale. : )
