Lots of rain and road closures due to landslides along the Hilo Coast! We are off the grid but there hasn’t been much sun for the last couple of days. Diesel genset is ready and plenty of propane.

Neil, didn't know you were out there, hook up with Eric after the storm and get G scale going in Hawaii. Be safe and best of luck, Bill

Neil,

Was wondering how you were doing.  We dodged a bullet here; that storm stalled for ~24 hours and we just had to wait to see what would happen.  We are blessed it hooked west.

Today, we are going to work off 72 hours of cabin fever with some 1:22.5 landscaping.

Aloha a me malama pono!

Eric

We got it pretty bad. Reports were over 40” of rain but we are further up the hI’ll do I wouldn’t be surptised if it was 48” in the last three days. The railroad doesn’t seem too worse for wear though. I‘ll be back to ballast after things dry out.
