An unexpected 'hometown chase' this morning breaks this week's pattern of work/missing storms. Thunder announced the presence of new storms to the west just before sunrise. Clear skies to the east meant a rainbow was imminent, creating a rare juxtaposition made even rarer by the fact that it was happening in the morning.

I tried reaction stills, catching a couple of flashes - but the bright daylight scene made the contrast of the channels suffer.
