No "cowabunga" next week.
Got a phone call from the Red Cross this morning:* "Good morning, would your spouse be willing to stand duty in the shelter on Tuesday & Wednesday, maybe longer?"
My spouse the military meteorologist doesn't get those middle-of-the-night phone calls from the hurricane warning center anymore.* I used to think that was a good thing but apparently we need to figure out a better early warning system so that we can beat Oahu's other 800,000 residents to the gas station.*

.* JB, it looks like Hilo is up first.* So far.
