Blizzard hits Hawaii!
« on: March 05, 2015, 03:15:10 PM »
 :o :o :o  Of course it only affects a couple of hundred people that work at the summit of Mauna Kea.  The observatories that are there at 13,700 ft.  Yesterday, gusts of 30mph.  Wind chill freezing and below.  Meanwhile, down below.  It was in the 80F.  Ocean was at 76F.  ;-T

So......what does that mean?  "Pineapple Express" should be hitting in a couple of days to the people that normally get the moisture after we have it.   :-* :-* :-*

But that was kinda normal when I had to visit the Maui site.  Warm and sunny on the beach, cold and miserable at the top of the mountain.  Only 'good' thing was we were above the cloud layer most of the time so could get some work done before heading back down in the morning.

We visited Mauna Kea one Christmas - locals drove up there in pick ups, filled them with snow, and took it back to the beach for BBQs and Christmas parties!

We also learned to bring our boogie boards up to the observatory - they make for great sleds in a pinch!

  Note to old bike 54, you may be posting from a submarine  but I took my girl on a ride on one today.
  Went down and looked at a couple of old wrecks, a lot of fish and one sinister looking shark.

I hit that tab when I started the thread but I did it again for you.  ;D I'll paraphrase my self.  "I think that the reading comprehension of some of the forum members is low."  :-*
