Marion County residents who looked to the west during the early morning hours of Jan. 10 had the opportunity to witness an impressive double full rainbow on the horizon. This was the scene from the Main Street of Hillsboro, using a panoramic approach to capture the rare event. According to the Book of Genesis, the rainbow was God’s promise that he would never again destroy the earth as he had in the days of Noah. Coincidentally or not, Marion and several surrounding counties were spared the potential damage of a major ice storm that was forecasted over several days to hit Kansas this past weekend.
