Aloha and Good now Afternoon in the Hawaiian Life community. How are you all doing? In with March, we have had our share of bad weather already. Terrible stormy tonadic weather, which is starting March out like a lion! Another force of nature is happening in Hawaii. The beautiful Kilauea Volcano has taken the final home and where I bring you one man's story. I'll send a couple articles of Mikes that are a related topic and Greg has a new breathtaking video MƖƝƝЄƜƛƝƘƛ from the Canadian Rockies, that is sure to make you smile. Don't forget, Travis is now a permanent fixture below... ;-)
*Kilauea Claims Last House In Royal Gardens*
The Kilauea Volcano and the Fire Goddess Pele's spirit has spoke loudly. Known as "the One Who Shaped The Sacred Land" she has once again sent her fury down the mountainside of Kilauea and caused destruction. On Friday night, she finally had taken the house that was the last of and located in what was known as the Royal Gardens subdivision and ended one mans almost 30 year story at that residence.
I have mixed emotions about this article, because it is a story that has been playing out on the Big Island for a long time, which now has a final ending. The good news is that nobody was hurt. The bad news is that Jack Thompson has lost his home of nearly 30 years. How did that happen you ask? He was the last resident of the Royal Gardens subdivision, as the powerful Kilauea Volcano had finally sent its river of molten rock in Jacks path and rolled down the hillside and incinerated his home...
Kilauea is no stranger to Hawaii and really not even to the world because it is one of the most active if not THE most active volcanoes on earth. It is home to the Hawaiian Fire Goddess, Pele! She has been making herself heard continuously as Kilauea has been active since 1983. Jack Thompson even said that he knew it was inevitable what happened last Friday night. He had the help of two helicopters to get what he could out before the home burned down.
Over the years he had watched as his neighbor count went down, from them having to move after losing their own homes. The lava even cut off the roadways leading to the subdivision. He would have to walk 3 or 4 miles to a different highway that was untouched by Kilauea to get out of the area. A friend of his was there to help him remove what he could. In time, I'm sure he will be grateful for the photos his friend, a photographer took, who was able to capture Kilauea in all her glory...
With about an hour to spare, the two men got the important items and with the help from 2 helicopters, got what they could and themselves away from the force of fiery nature that was about to slam down the hill and finally take the one lone home that was in, and now nolonger is the Royal Gardens subdivision. The only thing left is a tin roof and a water tank. They didn't stay to watch the house go... I would think even knowing it was coming... that would be a very hard thing to watch.
