Maui – The Miniseries, Part III
Ask me how my day was.
We're still trying to get acclimated to this whole "three hours behind civilization" gimmick that Hawaii has, when the wife received a frantic phone call at 3:00 AM.
It seems our San Diego County community of Rancho Bernardo is…well, you've probably heard.
So, day three in Maui was spent huddled around the laptop and watching streaming local news feeds about fast-moving fires and calling anyone we knew who might be in harm's way.
OK…I did hop in the pool for an hour and make another smoothie run, but I'd planned the day around these things, anyway.
For those wondering, we appear to still have a home for now.
Oh, and our 17-year-old, cancer-surviving, thyroid-addled cat was evacuated from the pet boarding locale at around 5:00 AM this morning. I swear to God, that bastard will outlive us all.
Hang in there, adopted hometown.
