Snowy Saturday

The view this morning from Kawaihae Harbor of Pu‘ukohola Heiau, a huge stone temple built by Kamehameha I to favor the war god Kuka‘ilimoku. The snowy summit of Mauna Kea is in the background and you may be able to make out the high powered observatories on the mountain top. The west side of the Big Island this past week saw rain, snow, hail, thunder, lightning, waves, wind, tornados and waterspouts. Quite a wild week for weather. Whenever we get high winds, precipitation and cold temperatures snow on the summits are a result.
