    Finally cooling down. Supposed to be 68 degree high, and 62 degree low for the Cubs game I'm going to Wednesday. Perfect night for some baseball.

    did not feel like starting up a new thread for this so i'll just post it in here.

    looks like hawaii will be seeing its first hurricane since 1992.

    we actually have long time member here on stockaholics who lives in hawaii (@stock1234)

    for now it appears the latest models show that the storm is not expected to make a direct landfall (or at least the "eye" of the storm) over the big island.

    still does not mean that the main island won't see a destructive storm. i believe if i heard correctly, the east side of a hurricane is the most powerful. plus you have those outer bands which can pack a pretty good punch.

    looks like the storm is currently at a cat 4 but is expected (or so we hope) to get downgraded even further before it makes landfall.

    hoping for all the best for our @stock1234

    Thank You again Cy. I just got up to see some updates, looks like it is a Category 2 Hurricane now which is kinda a good news. There is already a power outage on another island in Hawaii though, so I wouldn’t be shocked that we will have power outage at some point this weekend too here in Honolulu. Gotta charge up my phone a lot I guess and have to save some water. Anyway if I can go online, I will keep you guys updated :)

    good call on the downgrade ... looks like it did get down to a cat 1 by the time the eye reached the islands which is good to hear ... but those outer bands ouch! i heard those were pretty damaging :(

    hopefully you guys did not experience any wind damage or power outages?

    but it looks like the big island still got hit with some serious flooding :eek:

    whenever you can get a chance keep us updated on how you guys are doing @stock1234

    admittedly i have been a bit concerned

    hopefully you guys got out okay!

    Thank You Cy :) Sorry was busy yesterday so I couldn’t keep you guys updated. Yeah we dodged a bullet here on O’ahu, weather wasn’t all that bad to be honest, not that windy and not much rain at all. I heard the Big Island (Hawaii) and Maui had some pretty serious flooding though, so they got hit worse than us. Anyway I am very happy that it turned out nothing serious happened, was really worried that we were going to have severe flooding and power outage

    this is one of the mildest halloween's i can remember in recent memory. we've been getting lucky with the nice weather on halloween the past few years. i've always remember halloween being miserable...cold, rainy, you name it.

    pretty wild start to the winter season (albeit not officially). looks like the northeast got an early taste of winter yesterday and today. i believe if i'm not mistaken it was the earliest snowfall in DC in at least 3 decades. :eek:

    fuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

    i am not really looking forward to this weekend...

    this might be the first time i can rever remember snow this early in the season (it ain't even officially winter yet!)

    looks like we'll see up to 8 inches around my area, which ain't as bad as some other areas, but still pretty bad.

    i'm not really prepared for this to be honest lol.

    oh well, i won't complain too much since these weather events are pretty rare around here! :p

    i think we are looking at potentially breaking a record for the earliest snow here in the queen city.

    anyway, i am really hoping it won't be nearly as bad as they are predicting...

    ^^ It appears this is going to be a close call for us this weekend according to the weather experts.

    We are literally on the line of potentially heavy snowfall or just a few inches.

    Guess we find out soon.

    I'll take a few inches please but no more. Don't really want to be bothered with clearing snow off the driveway all weekend. Plus, I had plans for Sunday that looks like will be called off due to this storm. :confused:

    We'll see how it goes. Will also try to post some pics in here for you guys after this weekend.

    This is looking more like it could be an ice event for our area than snow, which might mean some power outages. Hopefully not, but we shall see how this weekend goes for my area. As of now, I'm in the middle of the blue and light blue line.
