The Wailua River Floods its Banks

Several days ago the monastery witnessed a powerful lightening storm, which brought with it tremendous rains throughout the night. Many suggest this was the Wailua's largest surge in the last 50 or 100 years. By 2:00am the flooding river had broken the state river gauge and would soon remove trees and strip bare the the banks of plants and silt, leaving only rock. Though none of us saw it while it was at full hight, the massive instant landscaping was more than obvious the next morning. Thankfully it didn't quite reach our large banana patch!

    Wow!!! What a powerful movement of nature to rip those giants out of the ground and flush the entire basin.

    Bet you could find some beautiful river rocks for garden projects down there.
