You love to see this.

One thing I've noticed towards the end of summer and at the beginning of fall has been the beautiful rainbows over Acadiana.

Sadly, with the lack of rainfall in Louisiana during the summer months we did not see many beautiful rainbows across the sky.

However, with showers returning to our area in recent weeks we have seen some gorgeous rainbows across the sky here, and we've even witnessed a few "double rainbows" over parts of Acadiana.

And I'll be honest with you, anytime I see a rainbow I think back to my childhood years. I can recall as a kid anytime I saw a rainbow it was special and I always wondered where the end was located.

After all, we were always told as kids that at end the of the rainbow there was a pot of gold awaiting, and for years we believed it. As we grew older, we learned that isn't true.


What is true about rainbows is that there is always an end to one, and I've yet to see one, until now.

Ronda Newman took a gorgeous photo of the end of a recent rainbow in central Louisiana and like so many on social media, I too appreciate this photo.

It was reportedly taken in Elmer, Louisiana and as you will see below, the end appears to be in a nearby field. But where's the gold?

Check this amazing photo out and if you know of anyone who loves rainbows as much as you do, feel free to share this blog with them.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
