Mahalo!

Just a hurricane headed here and an earthquake last night. The volcano
started up again (just a bit). We have frogs invading... are insects
next? Oh wait! We already have more than our share.

The storm has slowed and at 5pm in captain Cook, we have little to no
wind and overcast skies. No rain yet...

We are being shielded by the mountains at this point and I heard the
storm might be separating a bit. Time will tell.

I sure hope Cea is correct because I live about 1/2 mile down the hill
from her and I would really hate to see her place sliding into mine
sometime tomorrow.

Thanks Ed B. Looks ominous on the NOAA radar.
<http://www.prh.noaa.gov/cphc/ >

It is supposed to get near the south eastern end of the island, near
more like Kau Coffee land. Kau is quite exposed while we in the South
Kona District on the south western part of the same island are far
less exposed. We are also in the lee of a huge mountain (Mauna Loa,
13,277 feet). Of course to get everyone equally excited, "they" talk
about the hurricane possibly swinging around. A hurricane has not hit
Hawaii island in historical times, but it has brushed by. Oh well, we
will wait and see.

Seriously it would ruin the Kona Coffee if it hit big time for a year
or two. Cross your fingers, thank you.

Great to hear that all is well. The news mentioned that there has been
a bit of a drought on the island. Is that true? Ed

Thanks everyone, again.

Okay Robert, the picking at our elevation of 1869, begins in about a
month, none too soon for us:).

And Ed, part of this island has had a drought BUT, we have not. We
have had plenty of rain in South Kona. Plenty. Bob records it daily
and for example during our "rainy season" , we've had in June- 6.89
inches, July 8.40 inches and we've already had 4 inches his month.

Coffee is very healthy and happy.

Actually this passing hurricane that has been in our system for about
6 days has stopped the normal afternoon rains, but they'll return.

Thanks for asking.

aloha,
Cea

Well we have had 2 small earthquakes on this island in the last 24
hours, but that is not abnormal.

No wind, not much rain and all is well. Flossie kind of flopped:)

Thanks for your good wishes.

A tsunami big enough to reach Cea's place would be literally world
shattering. I've driven up the side of that mountain. Even the Krakatoa
tsunami was <only > 35 metres high.

Oh that was funny Alan:). Indeed, we are about 600 meters above sea
level.

But then at 3 am this morning we had a 4.4 earthquake. Yikes- seems
to be a daily occurrence but livable. Unlike Peru's disastrous one, I
know. They have our sympathy for an 8.0 earthquake that shook the
ground for up to 2 minutes, according to NPR. A real horror.

scary !
