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…

I Remember…

Author: maggi9454

My earliest memory is before the age of 2... by the time I was 13, I had no childhood memories... No holidays, no birthdays... On 11/5/17 a shooter in Texas changed all that... It triggered my memories from my 13th year... The Air Force covered it up an it happened in Big Springs, Texas 1967... Domestic violence, PTSD, TBI and I too served in the Air Force 10 years later... This is my story to remember what was stolen...
