Be thou the rainbow in the storms of life.
The evening beam that smiles the clouds away,
and tints tomorrow with prophetic ray.

[Lord Byron]

This is the Methodist church in Blanchard, Iowa (pop. 62) after a ferocious storm. My friend, Ray Hoffman, lives down the street and snapped this photo just in time. He submitted it to a local radio station. It is today’s photo of the day on KMA’s Website.

If you live in an urban area, you might enjoy a taste of small town, mid-America with a quick tour of the KMA site. It certainly reorders priorities from what one finds in city life—kind of like going on a vacation.
