Weather and "Iz"...

I'm happy to hear that so many people have |
discovered Iz - I watched the U-Tube video this morning and it made me both sad and nostalgic for the Hawaii
we loved. If you've developed a taste for Hawaiian
music, you might want to look on UTube for County
Comfort + Waimanalo Blues - a group that was one
of the first protesting what was happening to the old
Hawaii they were raised in. I think they all died of
drug overdoses early on in their careers. That song,
Waimanalo Blues, has some great slack key guitar
work that I love. The other group I still love is
Hapa. I only found a couple of their videos but one
is Lei Pikake, a good song with hula dancers too.
Thanks, Daniel, for directing us to Iz!
Now for the weather - a little thunder and lightning
last night about 7 PM produced .69 in. of rain. The
difference in the temperature as soon as the rain
started was dramatic. We've had three really hot
days in a row - high 80's for the most part - with
high humidity and at least one night with barely a
breath of air moving. Nothing exciting on the radar
out of Cuyutlan (below Manzanillo) right now but
all the elements are right for more rain soon. Pray
for rain! Things are looking shiny and green and
the tree frogs are singing lustily every night - life is
Weather Underground is tracking a couple of areas
very far south and west of us - one is already at
tropical storm strength - but both are much too far
offshore to affect us this early in the season. It won't be long though!
