Rainbows are pretty common here on Oahu. The mountain ridges trap the rain on top of them, and whenever you have light rain in one place, and sunshine in another, you are going to have rainbows. The UH men's teams are the Rainbow Warriors and the women are the Rainbow Wahine. Wahine just means "woman" in Hawaiian, so it is the Hawaiian version of the Lady Techsters and Lady Bulldogs and such. Anyway, here is a nice full rainbow that I took from the car window at a stoplight (Kalakaua and Kapiolani to be exact). It is sort of Hawaiian nature asserting itself over a modern city environment.
