Hooray!! The trade winds are finally back and have blown that insane week of vog away!!! I don't know about the rest of the island, but I was beginning to think that I was going to get some kind of respiratory condition!! The last few days I've been hacking up phlegm and coughing like I was a smoker again. It got me thinking: If Pele started really fuming, I mean like spewing HUGE amounts of poison, would they even tell us?? Where would we run to? How could we hide from the air?? We would all be trapped on this rock dropping like flies, people would walk the streets like the undead from some B grade movie with white masks and shirts over their mouths, desperate for clean air. Medical facilities would be pilfered for their O2 supplies, and people would begin rioting on the streets. I think it's time we put the lava rocks back where they belong, give a ride to a tutu in need, and give a silent nod to Pele, the goddess who continues to spare us the true wrath of her fury.
