Madeline

hurricane

Madeline approached as a category 3 hurricane.  By the time the storm reached the Big Island it had downgraded to a category 1, and then a tropical storm.  Winds were strong, but not damaging.  Rain was heavy, and some flooding did take place.  Overall, the storm has not fully passed fully by yet, but the worse seems to be over.

Right behind Madeline is Lester, and Lester is a category 4 hurricane.  It has picked up speed and will be here sooner than expected.  Hopefully, a repeat of Madeline will occur with Lester.  We will see and I will keep you informed.

Nui ka ua o Hilo! Pololei aka, maika’i kēlā, “Ue la lani, ola ka honua.”

Monday starts with pouring rain.  So much rain that waterfalls popup everywhere.  However, rain is always welcomed here.  It rains a lot in Hilo, but that’s good. When the sky weeps, the Earth lives.

church

One of the unique characteristics of the Hawaiian Islands are the places of worship.  The Heiau’s, Churches, and Temples, they can be found everywhere within walking distance.  Faith is a strong bind in the fabric of life in Hawai’i.

Ē kō mākou Makua i loko o ka lani, e hōano ʻia kou inoa

‘Counting blessing’ is an old saying to increase happiness.  Rather than focusing on burdens in life, which can seem overwhelming at times, there is always something to be thankful for.  That is, things in life that you can control.   It can be easy to focus on the negative, and ignore the positive.  We are a society that does remember the bad, over the good.  Always look on the bright side of life, and it will help you from falling into the dark side, even if they promise cookies.
