I think we're in for a pasting

Thunder is rumbling all around, flash flood watches and warnings have been issued and the rain is starting to increase. It's snowing at the summit of Mauna Kea and I closed UKIRT for the night several hours ago. We received warning emails all afternoon as the day crews evacuated the various observatories.

Given my house seems to be a natural lightning conductor, I think I'll be shutting down for the night as well...

Thunder and lightning =earlier, but oddly silent over Waikoloa right now. I suspect I will be waken in the night. You are right, best shut everything down.

Yep, thunder and lightning here in Honolulu. Lots of rain, but not very cold.
