Lightning and a Double Rainbow

On Saturday, a brief, flash storm ripped through Toronto. Some gusting winds, some amazing lighting (see photo by scott3eh above), and the roar of thunder was almost immediately followed by a remarkable scene - a stunning double rainbow.

Being the shutterbugs they are, blogTO readers were quick to snap away, and share them with us via the blogTO Flickr pool. Here are some of the best of the best photos (and a video).
