Damp squib

Well, not even a damp one here. The predicted "prodigious rainfall" simply didn't happen. In fact not a drop of rain fell here today although some of the other islands got smacked. Still, the highest rainfall amounts, around 4-inches in the last 24-hours, really isn't such a big deal here unless the ground is already saturated.

Apparently it's snowing on the summit of Mauna Kea though: most if not all the observatories have been evacuated for the night and the road is closed to visitors. People have been trapped up there in the past due to the single summit road becoming impassable, so we prefer not to take chances.

Well, then, Protege and I got our wishes. We must have some mighty mojo. Hmmm...

Thanks to both of you then! I really wasn't looking forward to more flooding rains, so I owe you both a favour!

Yes, happy to hear that our wishes came true and it was not as bad as you thought.;))
