One sleep away and we’ve officially made it through winter! Spring begins tomorrow, and one of the signs of spring will be the spring showers, and with that rain comes the sight of rainbows. We’ve been plastered with sun dogs over the winter, but a beautiful rainbow will be a welcome sight. Here’s betting, though, that the first rainbow we see will not last 9 hours. According to the Guinness World Record, a rainbow that was born in Taiwan at 6:57 am became the longest lasting rainbow ever recorded once it finally put itself to bed at 3:55pm. That’s a stretch of 8 hours and 58 minutes, crushing the previous rainbow record holder set in 1994 in England that lasted for a mere 6 hours. Isn’t it interesting that they’re actually able to keep track of something like this? There has never been a point that I’ve seen a rainbow and said to myself, oh, better grab my stopwatch and start timing this beauty. That may change now though. Wonder if the boss will accept “sorry I’m late, but I was timing a rainbow” as an excuse.
