I am glad that I am not the only one affected by this VOG! We live in the Palisades and it has been so bad the past couple of days. I have been getting headaches and a very sore throat!

My wife's asthma was so bad on the Big Island we thought we were going to lose her. Her sensitivity to the VOG and the pollen (and probably also gecko s**t) got worse over time.

Within a month or two after leaving Hilo for New England she was like a new person. She doesn't use any meds now, ever, and hasn't used her nebulizer since. It's been 12 years since we left Hilo. No asthma problems since.

I've heard other stories like this! The mold is also a significant allergen over here. Did you know that we have one of the highest rates of childhood asthma here on the Big Island? My daughter has been involved in a longitudinal (sp?) study over here for the past seven years. Many people attribute it to VOG, but as they saw the numbers in Waimea were so high, they are starting to attribute it also to mold!

A few hours ago here in Kihei, it was nice and clear, now you can't see Ulupalakua or Kahoolawe. It's a red ball of a sunset. I've seen it voggy here before, but this is some kind of record!!!!!!! Absolutely amazing!

Aloha and okolemaluna

Default Vog is going

It rained today in Kailua (Oahu) for the first time in about a week, and is washing most of that junk out of the air. What an improvement!

Still raining, off and on, at 7:00PM.

Today was the most beautiful day we've seen on the West side of the Big Island since family members arrived. Finally able to see the horizon clearly and the spectacular colors of the ocean! We head back to Hilo again tomorrow....hopefully, news reports are accurate and the trade winds are coming back!
