Called the mainland and was asked to call back in an hour so I have a bit of time on my hands.
Highly doubtful that any of the boats can be salvaged now. Yesterday they were afloat but today they're foundered and if the shoals were deep enough they would be sunk. Last year something like this happened but the CG responded right away and towed the sail boat off the rocks and remoored it. What's going on with the Harbor teams today, I just don't know.
This wind has taken all the warmth out of the air and I'm freezing........

Find your socks, and, gasp, maybe long pants.
Too bad about the boats...

Wow...and Hilo has that big breakwater. Whenever I am on the Big Island, I stay in Kailua Kona, but always make the drive to Hilo. I LOVE the 4 Mile Coastal Bypass with the Tropical Botanical garden.
Sorry you are having unpleasant weather there. Still, rotten weather in Hilo is better than rotten weather in Boston!
