Before and after the tropical storm on the Big Island

It was a  tough decision, do we head out from Denver into the teeth of an impending storm or stay home... you guessed it!  We got in just under the wire and the tempest turned into a heavy downpour with some wind.  Aside from rain for a couple of days, we had few side effects from the storm (very lucky) and are now discovering the beauty of the Big Island!  The brilliant colors over the golf course at Mauna Lani and the somber blues and greens of the late afternoon overcast sky show the effects of the storms that passed by Hawaii recently.  Sunset and late afternoon
