2 inches of rain

It’s late again, I’m still spending more time setting up this blog than writing.

But, I finally changed the title to “A Kauai Blog” for now at least. So, after all the rules I set for myself (some will say I’m becoming germanic), here are some of the things I created this blog to share:

  1. First but not really foremost: the weather. Hey, that’s what most people have been talking about for eons, they don’t call it shooting the breeze or parler de la pluie et du beau temps for nothing. But mostly that’s what Kauai is often about: wind, rain, sunshine, or any two of these in combination.

    For example, we had 3 inches of rain last night, and another 2 inches this evening. After getting over 5 inches just after Christmas, I decided to record rain when it happens. So I can tell you we got a total of 11.5 inches of rain before midnight on Jan 31. Since I still like doing scientific things, I’ll post graphs of rainfall when I make them.

  2. Anything having to do with the outdoors, hiking, discovering cool new places, local adventures, etc.

  3. My opinions about what’s going on here on Kauai. My interests are mainly in maintaining the Aloha spirit here on the island through sensible development, conservation of natural areas, preservation of native culture and local history.

    I see this as a way to write a letter to the editor of the newspaper and have it published every time, just like friends of the publisher.

  4. Updates on public meetings, events, or activism that promotes or degrades any of my causes above.

  5. Pictures of any of the above. I’ve always believed that a picture is worth a thousand words, so it’ll save me some typing. I won’t commit to a picture a day, but I like the concept and will use the Picture category to track the ones I do post.

  6. Random things of interest to me. These might include quotations (one of my favorites), book reviews, links to websites that I find interesting, links to my own website when I update it, etc. I will also go off on philosophical or metaphysical ramblings at times, so please bear with me.

I guess that’s a good start.
