Gas fills the air and booms in the background…

It is a rancid smell that hits you, when the gas from the volcano sits on top of you like a blanket… that was the odor we went to bed smelling and that is the same nasty smell we are getting right now…

On occasion, about 2 or 3 an hour, we hear explosions… those too have been going on since yesterday… We know that we are only about 10 miles from the action… but not far enough away to not feel it happening…

No major explosion yet at the volcano… the lava is getting down to the water table and if rocks plug up the tube, then we are looking at a major steam explosion, blowing substance in the air up to a couple of miles away from the volcano… the park is closed, so no danger to human life…

We haven’t seen any ash at our house… but disconnected our catchment just in case an bought a years supply of filters for the water… trying to get a parking canopy up today to protect the vehicles from acid rain…

If you are into volcanoes.. this is an exciting time on our island… but very safe and lots of island to see that is not impacted by our little drama at our end of the island…

No people have been hurt, but over 30 homes lost… housing will be a concern for the short-term… There are organizations in Pahoa and Keaau that are taking donations… please verify they are legit before you donate… Red Cross can not promise the money will go to Hawaii…

Thank you everyone for your concerns… It is just mother nature voicing her concerns over the lack of respect for the land…

You would think with all this gas and violence it would trigger memories… and at night I am having some weird nightmares, so we will see if I get anything out of all this activity and the place smelling very much like Big Springs, Texas… The brain is a powerful tool… it’s doesn’t always cooperate…

TimesUp #MeToo

I Remember…

Author: Adorable Spite

Domestic violence is an old song, sung thru the ages like a hymn and purported to be the way christians live their lives... full of deceit, hate, bigotry and most of all fear... It is that fear that cost me my virginity, my soul and most of all my humanity... I had to fight to keep the christians hands off my soul, but they stole from my body and so did the U. S. Air Force... Rape and attempted murder... but image was more important... Vance AFB and Webb AFB... #WhyIDidntTell #MeToo TimesUP, Circle of Silence is no more....
