I kept praying this last week that Madeline would veer farther South, Lester go North of Hawaii.

Lester going North of Hawaii Sept. 4, 2016
It’s not that they aren’t having high surf & wind, but that the main power of the twin storms would veer off from direct hits.

 

I like Hawaii, and identify with island peoples.
