Welcome, hurricanes!

Well, Daniel is now reduced to a tropical storm, but he and Hurricane Emilia are predicted to bring us some rain. Right in the middle of the dry season.

That saying about clouds with silver linings? It fits hurricanes perfectly.

Most people do not realize that in Hawaii we get most of our rain on just a few days a year — usually in winter kona storms, but occasionally, like later this week, when a tropical storm/hurricane brushes past.

Florida depends on hurricanes or tropical storms hitting the Mainland for virtually all of its freshwater. Lucky we live Hawaii, we can get the water without the wind — most of the time.
