Sunshine & Rain

Saturday, December 24th, 2011

It’s Christmas Eve here on Maui. Our upcountry district of Kula has enjoyed a brilliant, sunny day, but this being an island, the weather can vary a lot over a short distance. We drove a few miles around the mountain to Makawao, and it was pouring. We went down to the coast, and from the condition of the streets, it was easy to see we’d just missed a downpour there. And now we’re back home in Kula and the sun is still shining…of course, we could use the rain!

Looking toward Kahului, on the northshore of Maui. Rain clouds are hugging the coast.

An amazing number of surfers were in the water at Ho`okipa, despite the weather.

Happy Holidays to All!
