Figure I might as well the ball rolling...even if a little early.

Arrived FLL today (Wednesday) a little early thanks to United/TED. Zulumagoo was on my flight and his mom drove in from Orlando and was there to pick us up at the airport and take us to our hotels...after a short sightseeing diversion. A big "Mahalo" to them for the lift!

I got a great big oversized corner room on the North East corner of the Beachfront Tower at the Yankee Clipper...with one set of windows overlooking the pool and ocean, and the other set looking north along the beach and volleyball nets. Great "wrap-around" view.

And what a view!

About 15 minutes ago there was...well...a change in the weather. From beautiful calm day to almost hurricane strength winds, rain, and lightning! It came out of nowhere. Window were vibrating, pool and beach furniture flying everywhere, rain shooting horizontal, huge waves and whitecaps formed...all in about a 2 minute span of time. The place went from busy to deserted just like that! I've been through a lot of hurricanes and while this was probably not hurricane strength winds (despite what I over-enthusiastically exclaim in the video below)...it certainly was gale force. Just incredible.

It's calmed quite a bit now, but can still hear thunder in the distance and the wind is still blowing fairly well. I see a couple of guys from the hotel starting damage control.

Here's some crappy cell phone video hot off the press:

That was fun! Hopefully the Gods were just clearing things out for better weather for the rest of the week.

Holly's flight is delayed at least an hour and a half out of Houston, due to storms in Dallas stranding her flight crew. Hopefully she'll get in the air soon and it won't get canceled altogether due to the crew going "illegal."

Molokai soon...I hope.

The days are warm/hot and pleasant. The thunder and rain rolls through strong but its gone in about 90 minutes...

Sunbathing by day.... and in the late afternoon the thundershowers will force us all in for a much needed rest and recoup for the evenings events..

Weather is fine.

I agree -- weather is FINE! Hope y'all are in for some fun at the Bahia Cabana poolside tomorrow night. There will be much merriment and excess. Oh, and noise. Lots of noise. Especially from the bands playing.

We might even play some real music...

Nah...

If anyone is interested in having lunch... I will be eating at a great local restaurant - Southport. Shoot me a PM - most Cabbies know where it is (Off 17th street on the water).

So great to see a few ohana last night at the Molokai!

...just figured I'd post a photo of one of the pieces I recently finished just in time for Hukilau.



I ain't got much to report... see everyone later tonight!!
