where have all the rainbows gone?

When mum and I were driving over the bridge to PEI a couple of weeks ago, a rainbow appeared. It was the first rainbow I had seen in many years -- and it wasn't until I saw one that I realized it had been so long. I wasn't really missing them, but I wasn't seeing them either.

Imagine my surprise on Saturday, when I glanced up from my knitting and saw this out my window....

...within seconds, it had already fade to this....

....and less than a minute, it was gone.

I guess I just happened to be in the right place, at the right time. I seem to remember seeing them often when I was younger -- is this another sign of aging or it a problem of not really looking? When is the last time you saw one?
