Aloha Storm

Welcome back to Hawaii, the land of Aloha.

The best thing about being on an island during a 50-year storm is that you can always escape to another side for protection from the gale force winds and 30-foot surf. Volcanes work well as a shield!

At 5 pm today the swell buoys registered 38.4 feet (@17 seconds) – that’s the biggest, ever on record. People are tripping out, waves are rushing up onto roads, and one set even broke our front porch on the point at Waimea. No, it’s not surfable…it’s deadly – the winds are 40-60 knots with gusts up to 90 knots! That’s nuts.
