I would have been sandbagging that back wall, flashbacks to 93.

I seem to remember sitting a foxhole in the Kahuku's when we got hit by a torrent of rain like that, that was a MAJOR suck!!!! Every uniform I had was just caked with farking orange mud.

Did I hear right on the radio today that some parts of HI have had several feet of rain in the past few days?

Trying to remember the weather forcast I heard each day, something like:

High of 76, partly sunny with Malka (sp?) showers this afternoon.

I swear it was the same everyday, with the exception of hurricane Iwa.

I just got back from Kauia yesterday. The amount of rain there is incredible, a resivior broke and 2 houses were washed away along with the only road to the airport. 3 dead and 4 missing

I guess my little bit of sunburn while fishing in perfect 75 degree weather with clear blue skies is just small potatoes next to this!

sorry, had to rub it in.

Nice and warm in freefall too although the mini cold front that just went through put a bite in the air.
