VOG does make me stupid! Interesting. . . .

Yuck Vog. It is about the only negative with the Big Island. It was bad the day we got married in 2008 and made our sunset beach wedding just a beach wedding, but at least it didn't rain on us. :-)

Hattie

Ingineer: The vog this time was statewide. So it's not just on the Big Island, although it originates here. You can look at the vog map on the side bar to see what it's doing and what the predictions for it are.
Of course you had your wedding in the area that has the worst vog, which is on the other side of the island. Glad it all worked out, anyway!

I didn't think the vog was affecting me that much, but now that I'm thinking about it I've had to use a lot more Refresh for my irritated eyes lately. Vog is such a bummer!

OT: I did enjoy watching John Carpenter's movie "The Fog" back in 1980. Scary! Hope the Vog is not like that ;-)

SWMBO and I now keep an agenda and ask ourselves each bedtime "What do we have to do tomorrow?", because we can no longer keep appointments etc in our aged heads :-(

Hattie

Kay: It was lovely today, and we got lots done. Hope your eyes are better now.
Stu: I'm glad even you youngsters have trouble keeping track of things.

I'm guessing that vog can't be any less mentally debilitating than is smog. When I worked in the Los Angeles area, there were days when I could not follow a normal conversation let alone the technical conversations that were our daily fare at work. (I was only 45 at the time.)

I'll let you keep the vog!

Yes Hattie we got married at Kikaua Point Beach. It was a beautiful location. I look at it like the weather. You cannot do anything about it. The day before was beautiful and the next day it rained. We had a great time and got photos with a dark red ball in the background instead of a sunset. No biggie.

ingineer: We took some visitors up to Volcanoes National Park, and it was freezing, windy and foggy. They were from Washington State and said it was just like being at home.

It is all perspective. I was working on a bridge years ago here in Northern Cal and it was about 45 degrees and very windy. We were all freezing. A truck driver delivered pieces from Buffalo NY and when he got out of his truck, he said "pretty nice weather you have out here".
