It's not often we get an inside view of an event like this, while it's going on. Thanks! I've been wondering whether people on Kauai, where Iniki changed everything, had very different reactions to the possible storm than those on the Big Island?
Hawaiians are pretty mellow folks, as you know, PHeymont. And they weren't too excited about this Hurricane. Cautiously aware but no adrenaline flowing if that makes sense. Good point about signage, PM.
