Flo(p)ssie

Hey all,

Well, like a few other natural disasters in the past few years, Honolulu has managed to dodge the bullet Mother Nature fired from her revolver yet again.  This time in the form of tropical storm Flossie.  My coverage began on the windward side during the day, and when dark skies failed to deliver the torrential downpour and strong winds I was expecting, I headed to the airport to look for cancelled flights and their passengers.  So, like the storm itself, the photographs I were envisioning were a flop, but I made some lemonade out of some lemons nonetheless.

At the end of the day, I'm just always glad that no one was killed or hurt too badly.
