Remember Pearl Harbor

Today is the 66th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.


And it is also out one year anniversary in Hawaii. We had been in Hawaii for just one day, this time last year. What a year! Last year we were able to attend a ceremony in memory of Pearl Harbor at Hickam Air Force Base. This year we are happy to have power after a week of big storms and high winds.

Nathan had the kids out early cleaning up the debrit in our cul-de-sac. Luckily our big trees didn't lose any big branches. We did have a lot of limbs down.

Tree limbs fell on the fence behind our neighbor's house.

This big tree fell across an intersection, taking out powerlines and a stop sign. All that wood and Nathan without his Lathe!

Good work John!

Wow, a year already?! Time flies!

Big storms with high winds can be scary! (although I do miss the big thunderstorms of the midwest) Glad that you didn't have any real damage to deal with!

wow... amazing pictures from your storm. Hubby was stopping thru there the other day and watched a big satellite dish fall from the top of a building. So glad you didnt have any damage to yourselves or your house!

We miss you!!!! :( sniff sniff!!

I noticed in the paper this morning that today was the anniversary of Pearl Harbor. I thought of you and wondered if you would write something. Sad day!

That is too bad about all the wind and the trees down. Did you leave Nathan's lathe in the states? We could have stored it for you. ;)

Those Pearl Harbor pictures are amazing. It's hard to imagine what that must have been like.

What a storm! That's a whole lot of tree limbs. I love that Nate and the kids got in there and helped clean things up while you were just kickin' back, taking pictures, doing a hula dance, swinging on a hammock. Come on, admit that's what you were doing! I must be tired. Sorry for being so lame in the comments tonight!

I can't believe it's been a year already.

A year? Time DOES fly when you're in a tropical paradise. :-)

I really couldn't believe it when you said you've been there a year! Has the time gone quickly? I'm glad you guys didn't have anything damaged from the storm. Those pics of Pearl Harbor are humbling.
