Water, water everywhere

Yesterday we had the worst flooding in Honolulu in 20 years. I’ve been seeing pictures of flooding from across the island on the web, on TV and in the newspapers. What I didn’t expect was to walk downstairs this morning to find out there had been a mudslide into my garage. This must have happened yesterday, but when I came home from work last night I walked right by it and didn’t notice it. (I park in the driveway.) I live in a split-level home, and small bits of mud has been creeping into my garage from a seam in the wall for the last 2 weeks, but this time there was a 5″ cake of mud covering the entire floor. That doesn’t seem like a lot, but I just got done shoveling only half of it and I had to take a break. I wish I had pictures, but my camera battery is dead. The rain is starting to get ridiculous now – we’ve had 6 weeks of it pretty much non-stop. On a lighter note, one of the multiplex theaters flooded yesterday, and kid watching Ice Age got to experience the greatest special effect ever.

    6 weeks of rain? more like 4 months over here in Maui – most rain I have ever seen
