Hilo Bay: Before – UPDATE – During/After

I was visiting my friends today who live on a farm above Hilo in the Pu’ueo Farm Lots area at about 1200 feet elevation. While it was rainy up there which obscured the view most of the day, it cleared off late in the afternoon and I decided to snap a “before” photo of Hilo and Hilo Bay.

My friend agreed to snap “during” and “after” shots for me which I will post, if possible, with storm blog updates. It will be interesting to see the difference as the next couple of days unfold.

They live alongside one of five gulches that run down from Mauna Kea with two 70′ waterfalls so it will be interesting to see how heavy the flow gets in the gulch down toward Hilo, as well.

As of now, I’m already hearing “stronger than ususal” surf crash upon the cliffs nearby my home.

Stay tuned!

Here is a better late than never photo of part of Felicia over Hilo Bay. The next photos show the lovely rainbow created by the portion of a weather pattern created by Felicia that came onto Big Island as she went north over Maui and Kauai.

Felicia passes over and up toward Mauna Kea and dissipates but a remnant rainbow remains.
