Rain storm

On Saturday, we experienced a terrible rain storm here in Hawaii.  There was no thunder, but a steady downpour that lasted for hours. I was glad that our new roof, installed in 2012, held up, and there was no leakage.

Our driveway:


We were grateful for our covered garage:


Our patio:


David pounded the gutter, when it got loose.  He had to remove his shirt to prevent it from getting wet in the rain:


Our crotons were soaked, but the colors were still beautiful:


We turned off our water sprinkler, effective Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, as our lawn had received enough rain to last several days.

By 3:45 pm, the flash flood warning was canceled for Oahu, as the storm moved to the other islands in the Hawaiian chain.

    I guess you don’t usually get so much rain. We are accustomed to it around here. Glad you didn’t have a flood. 🙂

    Wow, that waterfall coming off your roof is big enough to give it a name!

    A lot of water in one big swoop. Did little children go out to play in it?

    We have had a few downpours here but nothing so warm that we could go topless!

    That really was a downpour, wasn’t it? Our trees and grass are so happy after it. Looking out at the rain from the inside of a house with an intact roof and no leaks is wonderful.

    Glad your home wasn’t affected by the downpour, Gigi. We hav had snow recently and are also not affected as living in the apt means no digging out concerns.
