Good Choice!  I am carrying so cannot imbibe.:)
Followed up with a glass of Komagatake. My friend came over for dinner and he has a few before he headed home.

Awareness, or lack thereof of people amaze me. It’s prob blowing 25-30 mph at my place and the park across the street is littered with LARGE coconut palm fronds all over the park. This lady is casually walking her tiny dog all around the park, at times DIRECTLY below the trees that have large fronds on the ground. Walking around with not a care in the world...

Yeah. Correct on path. Supposed drift slightly NE before hopefully a western turn.  No focus...

I think this was actually a really good opportunity to see how prepared hawaii is in the event of a large scale natural disaster.  Far better opportunity than any drills the state could have ran.   

While not perfect by any means (there are many things that could be a lot better) overall the state's readiness is way better than it was as little as 5 years ago.  This time around there was much better cooperation and communication between the state, feds, national guard, all counties, and private companies.   It used to be a completely chaotic disorganized mess, with preparation pretty much being personnel crossing their fingers and praying it doesnt hit.

I wonder if the better state response is related to the upcoming Governor's race?   ;)

What "opportunity to see how prepared (H)awaii is in the event of a large scale natural disaster." do you speak of ?
There was no natural disaster , much less a "large scale natural disaster"
Granted BI got lots of water (no offense) but Oahu and other islands had no real flooding, power outages, wind etc...  :sleeping:  :sleeping:
Hardly what I would consider a test in state readiness.

The thing that irritates me is the number of people who buy out Costco and Walmart 2-3 days before bad weather, then take everything back for a refund the next week because they didn't need it.

Water, generators, toilet paper .... you name it, they hoard it all then take it back.

The big box places should have an "all sales are final" policy or have limits on certain items during these kinds of peak demand situations.  Maybe that would force everyone to buy and keep a minimal emergency stockpile they can just add to when a storm is coming.
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, FUCK THESE PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!  I made a post, then Flapp enlightened me that this thread already existed...
