Rain Rain Go Away!
Lots of rain on O`ahu, today, and also on Kaua`i. The big storm that has been hanging over the islands dumped as much as a foot of rain on some parts of O`ahu.
It is still raining, but more lightly -- and expected to rain on and off on through the weekend. We need the rain (all of our beautiful flowers and greenery depend on it) but not all at once.
The Richard Ambo photo from the Advertiser (above) was taken in Haleiwa, on the North Shore of O`ahu. So far, we are okay here in Kailua, except for the collapsed fence (in the bottom picture).
This is about as close as we get to winter in Hawaii, so while there is evidently snow in the "Big Easy" -- and there may be some on Haleakala or Mauna Kea before long -- there is holiday rain here in Kailua and Lanikai.
