Missed Opportunity

I left work a little late this evening and the clouds out of the southwest looked angry. As I came over the mountain and headed downtown Birmingham, I saw a double rainbow that looked as big as an Interstate highway. It stayed in view and I kept trying to get over to the side of the road to shoot a picture but a woman talking on a cell phone foiled my attempt. When I slowed down, she slowed down. When I speeded up, she speeded up. I don't think she wasn't trying to be mean, she was oblivious to her surroundings. I guess she was slowing and speeding up because I was. Probably some cellular defense mechanism. Anyhow, I missed the shot. By the time I got around her and looked for a place to safely pull over, the sun went down behind the bank of dark clouds and snuffed out the rainbows like turning off a light switch.
There is a chance the weather may get nasty later tonight so I'm battening down the hatch and securing garbage cans and other objects that could become missiles in a stiff wind.
