I'm off to Fairview, West Virginia today, a small town near the WV-Pennsylvania line, to tell stories at the library and the elementary school. It's always a pleasure to visit this town, and to soak up the atmosphere of history in a mining community that has known much history, some good and some tragic.
Last Friday when we returned home (and boy do I have photos and stories to tell you about that trip!) a thunderstorm blew in and just as quickly left. The sun peeped through the raindrops so I knew there would be a rainbow. I hurried up to the top of the ridge and took photos. Here is one; I'll share more when I return this evening.
