Wedding portents

The afternoon before Zorg and I got married, I saw a huge rainbow in the southern sky. The night before Nina and Mike got married last summer, Zorg and I saw a buck beside the highway in Bellingham. And the night before my cousins Alex and Mary's wedding in Phoenix, we saw a coyote by the roadside.

I was trying to remember if I saw anything the night before my first wedding, to the wrong husband, 20 years ago. But all I can remember is that during the ceremony itself the sky turned black and a huge thunderstorm erupted over the chapel. And I thought I heard a voice say "This is a mistake."
