A Rainy Morning in Downtown Des Moines

A couple weekends ago, we were in the Des Moines area visiting my parents.

This was the first weekend we had the opportunity to visit them since the Downtown Des Moines Farmers' Market opened for the 2013 season at the beginning of May, so, of course, we had to go to the Farmers' Market!

However, when we woke up that Saturday, we were greeted with lightning and thunder. But we went anyway, thankful that the lightning had stopped and the heavy rain had eased up a bit, and thankful that we had rain gear, as the rain hadn't stopped for long.

While there, during a brief break from the rain (heavy, light and misty, or otherwise), I took a photo of the Polk County Courthouse with the Instagram app on my phone.

Of the zillion times thatI've been to DSM I don't think I've ever seen the courthouse. Nice pic.

When I saw 'Polk County Courthouse' I did a double take. Here in Oregon we also have a Polk County and a historic courthouse (built in 1899). It also has a clock tower, although isn't quite as 'grand' as the one you picture.

Great shot.
