Stay safe, Phage... I've been monitoring this storm, and its worrisome seeing it grow in intensity.. Hoping it breaks off its course, hopefully missing you all entirely.. Lets hope the only thing you guys experience is some minor winds & rain... A direct hit could be catastrophic.. prayers for you and everyone in the cross hairs..

It is rather nice to see everyone is worried about another member that doesn't seem worried at all. Strange but wonderful days indeed.

This member is more concerned and alert than worried, at this point.

But the concern of others is appreciated.

How are things progressing, Phage?

Has it become a storm in a teacup, or have things gone awry?

Good luck and stay safe Phage and all.

The computer models are all saying this will be a Cat 1 or lower at landfall.
Which means you put a couple gallon jugs of water in the freezer now.

It also is slowing down and is going to turn west sooner as well. I started feeling a little better about the situation yesterday afternoon (for no particular reason), this morning's update has given me reason. Tropical storm force wind probabilities have dropped a notch.

Fingers crossed for a good day to fly a kite, rather than a good day to flee to safety then!

I just noticed a report that said the storm is moving more northward now. Just a blurb and no other stories to back that up yet I'm seeing on the MSM.

Stay safe and dry Phage.

Yeah, that's been in the forecast for the past 36 hours or so. Hoping for two things to happen now.

1) It doesn't speed up, meaning it will have more time to weaken (as it is doing, slowly).
2) It hangs that hard left sooner rather than later.

Can you have a word with the boys out at Gakona for me? See if they can work something out?


Waiting mode now.

Shear already doing its magic on the north side of the storm. Those rain bands can still be pretty intense and they bring the winds down so hopefully everybody living near the usual flood risk areas will be ready to move. Not sure how robust the power infrastructure is on the islands but squall lines usually cause power outages.

The grid varies from island to island because each has quite different terrain, and each grid is separate. With tropical storm winds it's pretty much guaranteed that power will be lost. Oahu is tricky because the generators are on the west side of the island and the high tension lines run over the Koolau mountains to the east side. Them are some rugged mountains and when those lines have problems they tend to be major. Nothing like Puerto Rico though. It's hard to imagine how this storm, as it is, would result in an extended outage. More than a week.

I can't believe I've never seen that before. Duct tape, and everything.

I'm gonna do it. For effect.

If she's like me, she prefers a gibson.

And what the deal with those stupid martini glasses?

That is a lot of rain!


Hurricane Lane already lashed the Big Island with nearly 20 inches of rain in nearly 24 hours and was moving closer to Hawaii, a shift that will put the Big Island and Maui “in the thick” of the storm, National Weather Service meteorologist Melissa Dye said. The agency says the storm has weakened to a Category 3 but can still cause major damage.

Did the volcano threat(s) abate over the Summer? Haven't heard much in the news about it over the past 60 days or so.
