Mahalo to Hawaiian Food Blogs

Thinking of y'all today. Hope all is well.

Aloha Cookie Jill,

I posted something today on my food blog about our experience with this past Sunday's earthquake off the Big Island. Here's what I wrote:

Quik Note on the QUAKE…

We were in our condo in Waikiki when it hit. My girlfriend was up, getting ready for work and I was asleep. She immediately ran in the bedroom and woke me up, as she was pretty frightened. I awoke to the bed shifting side to side and a house plant doing the Hula. The first quake was certainly stronger, with a significant side-to-side movement of our building. Not jolting enough to topple or break anything though. Sort of like mild turbulence on an aircraft. Still, it was pretty scary. Every second felt like a minute. The second tremor was similar in sensation but weaker and shorter.

As soon as it ended, my next thought was TSUNAMI! Thank, thank, thank God (and madam Pele) we didn’t have one. Just 4″. Oooh… get the boogie board!
My girlfriend beat the soon-to-be-HOURS blackout and made it down the elevator in time to go to work. Yes, being a hotel employee, she had to work. Actually she faired better than I did by keeping busy. I was absolutely BORED out of my brains! No electricity meant NO TV and NO Internet.. ackkkk! To top it off, it was a muggy, rainy day. Just a dreadful, wasted Sunday.

My heart and prayers go out to those on the Big Island who suffered lost homes and property damage. Let’s hope madam Pele remains kind to us. Despite property damage, nobody was killed or seriously injured. She truly was kind.


Aloha Jill
