All Eyes on Flossie

"What a rack!" I said to myself this morning as an axis deer with a full set of antlers crossed the road only a few yards from where I was walking. I need to work on my draw, though. The buck disappeared into the bushes on the other side of the street before I could get the camera out of my pocket.

It is a normal beautiful sunny day here in Makena while we wait for Flossie to decide which way she is going to go. The last time a large hurricane got this close was Iniki in 1992. Iniki missed Maui entirely but washed away all the sand from our beaches. From my experience most hurricanes around here make an abrupt turn to the north at some point, usually before getting to the Big Island. So the question for me is: when is Flossie going to make that turn?
