The Morning GIF: Manufacturing happiness

Color Pipes
Here's a cure for your winter blues.

Here at the Daily Dot, we swap GIF images with each other every morning. Now we’re looping you in. In the Morning GIF, we feature a popular—or just plain cool—GIF we found on Reddit, Canvas, or elsewhere on the Internet.

In a gray winter with considerably less range than 50 shades, it's sometimes hard to find a reason to perk up. That's something best left to spring, when the sap runs, the birds twitter, the worm turns … sorry, going emo again there.

The absurdist-inspirational Tumblr Un Gif Dans Ta Gueule has the cure to the winter blahs for you, in one sweet, simple, and resonant image. Color Pipes is a rainbow of pipes set against dull concrete against a blank sky. At first nothing seems to be happening. Then, suddenly, a burst of color, of inspiration, and then another and another. And suddenly out the top pops a multicolored confetti, a shower of chromatic joy.

A simple pleasure, perhaps, but a pleasure nonetheless!

In Sandy's aftermath, two rainbows over Manhattan
Hurricane Sandy's long arms of destruction have finally moved inland, but New York City is still reeling. Millions are without power. Flood waters have yet to recede, and another high tide looms. But if you’re prone to seeing omens in Mother Nature, she’s left a hopeful sign over lower Manhattan this morning: a double rainbow, confirmed via dozens of images on Twitter and other social media sites.
