Monastery Rides Out Storm

We want to assure our CyberCadets that all is well at the monastery this morning.

It's true that Kauai has just gone through a powerful rain storm that brought floods and landslides to the North Shore, which took the brunt of the storm. In 24 hours there were 27 inches of rain in the Hanalei area.

At the monastery there were strong rains, but not THAT strong. More like 5-7 inches. Still, the Wailua River rose to a level not seen in about 17 years, rising a full ten feet from normal! That brought a mountain of fallen trees down stream, which are now piled up on the banks of the Nani Kaua pond! In 50 years we have not seen such a massive amount of debris here.

Otherwise, the rain did not cause any real damage. A little erosion on the roads and a lot of mud on our vehicles. We are glad to report that the sun is meekly peeking through the clouds this morning and all is well in Siva's Perfect Universe.

Archives are now available through 2001. Light colored days have no posts. 1998-2001 coming later.
