Stop Look See

A   L   O   H   A  !  
" Every leaf
speaks bliss 
to me -"
                   Emily Bronte

Hurricane Update: 
The largest Hawaiian island is named "Hawaii." 
 We call it "The Big Island."

 The storm caused wind damage on the 
east side of The Big Island; 
Some folks may be without power 
into next week - or longer. 

But there were no deaths, and NO hurricane
has ever touched the Big Island.
[Iselle was a Tropical Storm when they met]

We are on Oahu 
"The Gathering Place" 
where Honolulu and Waikiki are. 

Everything here is normal. 

All the prayer and positive intentions WORKED!  
Thanks for YOUR caring questions!

"Keep your eyes 
wide open before marriage,
 and half-shut afterwards."
                               Benjamin Franklin

" There are always flowers
 for those who 
want to see them. "
                     Henri Matisse


          Your Friend, cloudia

Aloha Cloudia, this is the best news ever! You have some awesome prayer warriors. Love that quote, and sometimes eyes totally shut works best! Hehehe!

I'm so glad the storm downgraded to a tropical storm, and no fatalities on Oahu. Beautiful leaf photo!

i am glad life is normal where you are. and i am glad there was no life taken. you can live without power for a bit. that is just an inconvenience.

So so happy Iselle was "only" a tropical storm when she "met" the Big Island, and that no one was killed. Hope the power is restored quickly. And very very glad that you did not meet Iselle! Matisse quote is my favorite this week.

Thank you.

So glad you came through the hurricanes unscathed. Love the shadow flowers!

Cloudia said...

Oh thanks! You folks are the BEST!

I'm tickled you seem to like that shadow shot as I do-

Matisse Motto, right?

Adam - you know so much interesting stuff

Emily is nearly right. Every leaf shouts bliss (and peace) to me.
So glad that the damage was minor.

Beautiful shots, Cloudia. Good that the storms have not been worse.

Hilary said...

Normal is good! I also like that shadow image. :)

Have you noticed that the Hawaii newscasters keep calling the Big Island, Hawaii Island? However the mainland anchors are calling it the Big Island. Why don't they give up already and just let it be the Big Island again, for goodness sakes!?!
