    Destination: Kauai

    opaekaa falls after stormIs it irony or the fickle finger of fate that a Disaster Preparedness Guide arrived in my mailbox today, a day after the governor of Hawaii declared Kauai and Oahu Counties disaster zones? But it is sunny today. Right now. On Kauai. In Anahola.

  • My February in Photos

    Destination: Kauai

    Napali Coast, Kauai, HawaiiThe truism, “It is sunny somewhere on the island” flat out isn’t true today. It wasn’t yesterday. Or the day before.

To go with it, the sky emitted a growl or two, and I high-tailed it for home on the opposite side of the island.

    Destination: Hawaii Island, Kauai, Maui, Oahu

    On Saturday, February 27, 2010, Hawaii stopped. From 5:45 a.m. when the first round of automated Civil Defense messages went out via landline phones until 1:38 p.m. when the all clear sounded, most people in Hawaii stationed themselves in front of their television sets, computer monitors and/or mobile phones.
