That's good.  You can get your full quota for natural disasters out of the way all at once.

I can't help imagining the couple who is taking their once-in-a-lifetime dream vacation to Hawaii at this very moment.

I don't get it.  Gay marriage has been legal in Hawaii for some time now.  God asleep at the switch or something?

No tsunami. Where's the hurricane evacuation route? Road to the airport?

Gay Marriage + Obama's reported birth state? I'm pretty sure it's somehow Obama's fault. But I need to study it out.

And yet, it's still sunny and beautiful on the leeward side of the island. 

A global climate change denier would use this fact as evidence that global climate change is a farce, in spite of satellite images of a hurricane coming right for us.

We're all cutting out where I work at 2. Many places are planning to be closed tomorrow. The wind just started picking up a little, but that could be from anything. I have a case of beer, sixty pounds of ice, a handle of tequila, emergency lights, food and fresh water for two people and a cat to last a week, a wind up radio, first-aid kit and camp stove, camp coffee pot and plenty of propane, just in case.

/worried that I might run out of beer

Meh, call me when y'all get four in a row.  Spent every other weekend boarding up and taking down hurricane shutters; in between we cleaned up the debris.

\Fark you, Charlie, Frances, and Jeanne!

And a global warming alarmist would use this as evidence of climate change, even though hurricanes have been hitting Hawaii since the 1800s (and surely before that as well), neglecting the real culprit: El Nino. I can build strawmen too!

Stay safe, as it seems like the Big Island is gonna take a decent whack no matter what.

two hurricanes at the same time

Also known as "1 minimal hurricane (which may or may not maintain hurricane strength all the way to the Big Island) tonight with a direct hit and 1 tropical storm skirting the islands to the north Saturday night".

The East Coast did this with Irene. Irene hit on August 25th, and the 2011 Virginia Earthquake occurred two days earlier.

Now if there was an volcanic eruption during a hurricane, would it be a volicane or a hurricano?

Or, more likely as a data point. This is the first hurricane on record to directly hit the Big Island. Also the first in twenty-plus years and third ever in recorded history. And, yes, El Nino--that is *warm* Pacific water during a recurring, incompletely-understood oceanic trend--is a contributing factor to cyclone formation and strength.

Now, does that sound the same to you as using weather as evidence (or lack thereof) of climate change?

Not important, I suppose, and I mainly wrote it because I thought the parallel was funny.

Thanks for the well-wishes Farkers. I'll be hanging out until the power goes out, once I get home, that is.

I can confirm its still a lovely day in Kona. The water shelves are empty at the store but there is still plenty of beer. I bought 7 cases. Beer has water in it right?
