    Unusual Day in Hawaii

    We are having an unusual day here in Honolulu, we are experiencing what is know here as "vog", which is a combination of haze and volcanic ash (from the lava flows on the Big Island). Quite an interesting combination.

    The same here in Maui. Sticky and hot. The palm tree leaves just barely move. No Vog over here though, just no air. Perfect weather for sunset shooting.

    No volcanos around here. Best I can hope for is for the Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant to go up.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    As long they have plenty of duct tape and chewing gum, I sleep just fine, Tom

    I went on a tour of the Seabrook Nuclear Plant, in New Hampshire, with a pistol-shooter friend, who is fairly familiar with Nuclear Power - he wrote the report for the NRC about the "Three Mile Island" incident.

    There is a*chance* that a modern "non-breeding" plant will go BOOM! It is a little less probable than an ordinary glass of water going boom! from a spontaneous nuclear fusion explosion ... about a zillion times less likely than walking out of your front door and getting hit by a meteorite.

    I wouldn't use duct tape though ... leaves a really crappy residue ... use Gaffers tape instead.
    Carpe erratum!!

    It was quite heavy, but, by the time I got home, through all the traffic, it was pouring down rain (on my side of the island). I went out this morning, hoping it would still be around and make an interesting sunrise. Unfortunately, the winds have shifted and blew it out to sea again.

    Definately worth getting out with the Velvia. When Ruapehu blew here, we had unusual sunrises and sunsets for a few weeks. Good Luck.

    er Ed - What's Breeding powerstation? Do they spawn little powerstations?
