We've had some pretty serious rain the last couple of days. As usual, the infrastructure can't cope and sewer mains are overflowing.
I just came across this warning on the front page of our local news. They should probably use this in the next tourism ad campaign.
The public is advised to stay out of flood waters and storm water runoff due to possible overflowing cesspools, sewer manholes, pesticides, animal
fecal matter, dead animals, pathogens, chemicals, and associated flood debris.
Ew! Although we had a similar warning this weekend in Brisbane with our floods, its just safe to stay out of flood waters, period. They're filled
with everything! I know a few people that have waded in with a cut and gotten infections
And shush, I'm headed to Oahu at the end of this year on my honeymoon, so it is all its cracked up to be! :p
Hawaii is 6 time zones away from the east coast. I didn't know that until I went. Los Angeles, is 3 hrs plane ride, but Los Angeles to Hawaii is
Another Three Hours!! So you get there, but your body is still on east coast time. It takes 2-3 days to adjust. The sunsets are the most
beautiful I've seen. It's beautiful. Then you come back, and it takes another 2-3 days to readjust. Just too far, IMHO.
