Darby, Hawai’i

What a weekend. If you were here on the islands this past weekend, you got to experience the first storm of the hurricane season to impact Hawaii. Though we got through the weekend without any monumental damage, the days were blanketed by dark grey clouds & constant rainfall that transitioned into roaring thunder & extreme flooding in particular spots around the island of Oahu.
