As the storms approach...

You may have heard that we are facing possible storms here in Hawaii.  I'm praying that they miss everyone.  We shall see!

Keeping that in mind, I made sure, when I saw some pink outside our windows, to get outside and take some photos.  One of the things I dislike about a huge storm is that one might be stuck inside, with little to do but read, play Carcassonne and talk. And await the weather updates.  So here's some pretty from yesterday:

 You probably know by now that my hubby and I love palm trees. There are always some around (and I hate to think of them in terms of heavy trunks flying through the air! as they can in a big storm.)  But enough of that.  I'm praying the storms will miss us and things will remain as pretty as they currently are..

 You don't really get the impression of the majesty of these clouds: their huge size is something that often strikes me here on Kauai.  They are also, especially later in the day when I stroll down to the pool to swim and exercise my shoulder, brightly white.

And of course, pink sometimes, too.

There is a huge Banyan tree near us that has been torturing me,keeping me from taking a photo that truly encompasses how massive and yet lovely it is.
I can't say this photo really captures the size, either, but this is getting closer.

And there was also some rain nearby:
This is the only photo of a series of 8 that I took that shows the rain coming down. (If you cannot see it, click on the photo.)

As when snorkeling, I don't mind the cloudy aspect of rain....I do miss the light, though. Normally, these hills behind the palms are bright green.  I guess the rain is why they are that way!

Humid and foggy.
I will keep you up to date on how we fare in the days ahead..
