I am really attracted to the color orange...I'm wondering if it has something to do with the fact that we have had 30 out of the last 31 days of rain! Or is it the fact that this is the color that the peaceful Buddhist monks have chosen to wear?

Here is the explanation of the color orange from Wikpedia:
The colour orange occurs between red and yellow in the visible spectrum at a wavelength of about 585–620 nm, and has a hue of 30° in HSV colour space. It is numerically halfway between red and yellow in a gamma-compressed RGB colour space, the expression of which is the RGB colour wheel. The complementary colour of orange is blue. Orange pigments are largely in the ochre or cadmium families, and absorb mostly blue light.
