It's great to escape the cold, rain and snow we have had this winter. Interstate 90 was closed most of 4 days this week over Snoqualmie Pass 50 miles east of Seattle! And closed for over 5 hours today Hello, Kona. We spent Saturday afternoon waiting out a long connection in a garden at Honolulu airport, talking with a great couple from Ottawa, Canada. It wasn't that sunny, but nice enough to enjoy sitting outside for over two hours. We are at Kona Reef condos, which is just south of Kailua town, 7 minutes walk to Hard Rock Cafe. But there are no beach walks here, which we are used to on Maui. At Sugar Beach Resort we could walk the beach for over 3 miles to the west and a mile to the east, probably farther, never tried - no rocks, just a little coral on the beach to get across. Kona is overcast with 40% chance of rain. Weather Underground - Hilo is raining and flooding.
