End of the world?

Hi Everyone,

Well, we had Hurricane Flossie approach the island, then fizzle. We had a 5.0 earthquake on the Big Island as a Waialua brushfire surged out of control and burned 6700 acres on the north shore of Oahu. Then Lima, Peru had a 7.5 - 8.0 earthquake which triggered a tsunami advisory here (later cancelled). Then this morning, another 4.0 earthquake on the Big Island, all during a recent surge in the lava flow at the Pu'u O'o vent, part of a 20 year ongoing eruption.

What is going on here?

We're fine. For all of that, life seems pretty much the same as usual here. Kids have started school, I've restarted archery and exercising, and Bryan is continuing his swimming classes. We are blessed.

Peace, Love and Blessings,
