Updates

I don't want to tie up "Daily Chat" with articles so, for those interested, I will post updates to this article.

 

Here is a link to the video from this morning showing new activity...

I can barely stand to watch natural disasters or even man made ones. I always think of the pain of losing the home you worked so hard to get. Harder yet if you lose a loved one. Right now New Brunswick is experiencing floods and that breaks my heart too. Thank God and the powers that be that I have never had to experience any of that kind of thing.

It's really sad to see the rising count of homes consumed by larva... 31 was just reported with dozens more on possible threat.

One of those things that is cool to watch .... as long as it isn't in your back yard :P

Prayers going out to the victims. My original post was referring to the eruption and flow video (which people pay to go watch as tourists), and not the general carnage which is never cool to watch :P

I believe we all realise there are two parts to this volcano eruption... it is a magnificently powerful  phenomenon but horrific for it's victims.

I think your first post was  very apt.. NIMB

Yes, there are victims.  Nobody wants their home inundated with lava but there is a clear understanding that it is a possibility.  Hawaiians will clean the house if lava is imminent as a sign of respect to Pele.  Clean house for her visit.

 

I would fell true anguish if someone was swindled by a developer or unscrupulous realtor and, while that happens, I am sure that is not the norm here.

 

There are people that live on the lava that flowed over Kalapana in the 1990's.  They rebuilt on the barren lava and have even had the second go consumed at some point.  Some might call it crazy, but it is a contrary breed of person that would do that.

I admire them for their respect of Pele.

 

It would soften the mental anguish of losing one's home.

I can understand this.. golf is addictive

My father used golf to avoid dealing with family life .  I am not sure if it is addictive or an excuse.

Sending positive energy your way, Mike.  In my land of Oz, we call it "sending prayer".  Please be safe.  From what I've read, Hilo is only about 50 miles away from Kilauea.  Hope the mountain doesn't let go with all its full glory.
