Hurricane Flossie…ack!

The sky at dusk from our lanai.

The sky is falling…NOT! Hurricane Flossie (what kind of name is that?) has been downgraded to a category 3 storm, but is still expected to have some affect on the islands with rain and wind. So what does that mean? Lousy weather and everyone and their uncle heads to Costco to stock up on water, batteries, flashlights, and canned goods. We’re no exception. There I was today at Costco Iwilei after work at 6:00 p.m. stocking up on goods. And forget about trying to fill up the RAV with gas…there was about a 20 minute wait for that. The Big Island is expected to experience most of the negative affects and talking to mom this evening (having just returned home today from visiting us this weekend) says the weather isn’t all that bad. Is this just the calm before the storm? Stay tuned.
