MY BEAUTIFUL LIFE!!!

MY INTRO

ALOHA AND WELCOME TO MY PERSONAL BLOG!!! I THOUGHT WHY NOT SHARE MY PERSONAL GAINS & STRUGGLES THAT LIFE PUTS OUT TO EACH AND ONE OF US. I FEEL THAT THROUGH THE GIFT OF "GIVING & SHARING", THERE IS NO WAY BETTER THAN START THIS BLOG WHICH IS ALL ABOUT ME, MY OHANA (FAMILY), HOALOHA (FRIENDS), AND EVEN ENEMIES WHICH ARE THE VERY ONES I NEED TO LOVE AND ACCEPT.


I'LL SAY THIS STRAIGHT UP, I DON'T HOLD BACK MY FEELINGS FOR ANYONE AND IT'LL COME OUT OF MY MOUTH ON HOW I FEEL ABOUT YOU AND OTHERS. I DON'T GO BEHIND ANYONE'S BACK AND START RUMOURS WITH HOPES THAT IT WILL CIRCLE AROUND AND FINALLY HIT ITS TARGET. WHY TAKE THE LONG ROUTE WHEN I CAN GO STRAIGHT TO THE POINT. PERSONALLY, I THINK THAT IS THE "REAL" WAY OF LIVING LIFE, "BE REAL" AT ALL TIMES EVEN WHEN THE WORLD IS WATCHING.


ON THE OTHER NOTE, "I AM" THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PERSON IN THE WHOLE UNIVERSE FROM THE WAY "I SEE IT". I AM NOT SPEAKING FROM OTHER PEOPLE'S FEEDBACK OR "CONCEITEDNESS". "THIS IS" WHAT I CHOOSE TO SEE MYSELF EVERYDAY WHEN I WAKE UP FROM MY BED AND THANK "AKUA" (GOD) FOR GIVING ME ONE MORE DAY TO LIVE, REGARDLESS OF REGRETS FROM THE "YESTERDAYS" TO THE FEARS OF "TOMMOROWS".


IN MY EYES, LIVING A "BEAUTIFUL LIFE" CAN ONLY BE ATTAINED BY "CHOICE" AND IT REQUIRES "INTEGRITY", "HONESTY", "UNCONDITIONAL ACCEPTANCE", "FORGIVENESS" AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, "LOVE".


AS MY BEAUTIFUL ANCESTORS HAVED ALWAYS BELIEVED:


'Ike aku, 'ike mai, kokua aku kokua mai; pela iho la ka nohana 'ohana.


WHICH MEANS, RECOGNIZE OTHERS, BE RECOGNIZED, HELP OTHERS, BE HELPED; SUCH IS A FAMILY RELATIONSHIP.


SO ONCE AGAIN, "WELCOME TO MY BEAUTIFUL LIFE!!!"

SNOWING IN HAWAI'I!!!!






Snow blankets Mauna Kea

Storm forces closure of access road to summit

The first real snowfall in perhaps two years has capped the summits of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa.



Mauna Kea's summit is closed at least through this morning and possibly all day as crews work to remove ice and snow from the access road following Friday's storm.

Mauna Kea Weather Center forecasters expected fog, ice, thick clouds and snow flurries to shroud the summit through the night, with temperatures falling to 26 degrees Fahrenheit.

"Periodic fog, ice and high humidity will probably continue to plague the summit through Monday night," forecasters said.



"The Mauna Kea Access Road to the summit is closed above the Visitor Information Station due to snow and ice on the summit roads, thick fog and deteriorating weather conditions," rangers said in a message posted Friday afternoon. "The road will probably be closed (today)."

Friday, webcams posted at the various observatories showed whiteout conditions blanketing the summit, with steady winds of 40 mph and subzero temperatures all day.

Personnel at all the observatories left the summit Friday due to the unsafe weather conditions.

The National Weather Service had declared a winter storm warning in effect for both summits through 6 a.m. today. Up to 6 inches of snow are expected to fall by the time the storm passes, although much of that will likely melt away before anybody is allowed on the summit.

On Mauna Loa, heavy snow prompted concern for three overdue hikers, but emergency responders reported that they were able to reach their vehicles safely.



Forecasters expect better weather to arrive soon, as the islands dry out today. Another front is coming down the island chain, but it is expected to dissipate before reaching the Big Island. Southeast winds are forecast to persist throughout the next week.



THESE PICTURES WERE TAKEN ON 12-10-10 ON THE 'BIG ISLAND" OF HAWAI'I.  I HAVE MET AND HEARD PEOPLE SAY THEY DIDN'T KNOW THAT IT SNOWS IN HAWAI'I.

A POPULAR SAYING IN THE ISLANDS:

"SNOWBOARD IN THE MORNING & SURF IN THE AFTERNOON"

ALL ON THE SAME DAY!!!
