Life on a Volcano

Living on lush, tropical Kauai, it’s easy to forget that we’re actually living in the crater of what used to be an active volcano. With the recent activity on the Big Island, we got a taste of VOG over here a few weeks ago.  It was eerie… couldn’t see the mountains, couldn’t see the ocean – reminded me of Los Angeles smog. 


In a recent email from an agent in Kona area on the Big Island, she described living with the VOG over there…

“Regarding the VOG – you cannot even imagine how awful it is here.  We have not seen the sun, the moon, the stars, the horizon, BLUE ocean since about January.  Day after day of murky stuff – coughing more, headaches, sinus issues, and gloomy weather.  I have not seen a Kona day with blue sky and sparkling ocean for months.  Maybe we get an hour or two of tentative sun in the morning, but that’s it.”
