It's Raining Gems...

...hallelujah. It's raining gems...

Are you singing that old song by the Weather Girls yet? You know the one, it's raining men... (I tried to find a version with the original singers but without the guys dancing in g-strings...cover your eyes if it offends you)...  :(


Anyway, I digress. It's just what came into my mind as I looked out the window and saw tiny gems falling from the sky. It doesn't happen often, but occasionally conditions line up perfectly with very cold air, a little mist and sun shining through it. I always wondered where the idea came from for lights on the Christmas tree ... now I know. (Click on the images to enlarge them for a better view).
