Raining Toads?

This week, Hawaii was very lucky that Hurricane Flossie basically missed the state and fell apart. At the same time, we had a big brush fire on Oahu, an earthquake on the Big Island, and a brief tsunami scare after the earthquake in Peru.

What's next? Will it rain toads?

I hope not!

We cancelled our Wednesday night Karate class because we were concerned about Hurricane Flossie. We did not want our students to have to drive in heavy winds and rains. As it turned out, it was a very calm evening with no rain to speak of. However, we always feel that it is better to be safe than sorry. A little change in course and a little increase in winds, and Hawaii could have had serious problems.

As Karate students, we should be prepared for things, not just unexpected attacks, but even hurricanes, brush fires, tsunami, and perhaps even falling toads!
