Gives that location much needed relief.lightning 001

Hawaii in general are about one-third into their hottest period of the year (August to September). During that period it's a challenge to reverse the solar gain without using an expensive air conditioner.

The daily low in my home was 82 degrees Fahrenheit yesterday. If we didn't have a heavy thunderstorm in Hilo today, the situation would have most likely gotten worse.

Rain was falling at a rate of up to 2 inches per hour today, while the thunder was shaking my home like a bomb went off nearby. It was dry on the other side of the island in Kailua-Kona.

As of this writing, it's 75 degrees Fahrenheit in Hilo (east side of the Big Island) vs. 89 degrees in Kailua-Kona (west side of the Big Island). That's a huge difference considering both locations are near sea level!

I'm taking advantage of the rare situation by maximizing my cross ventilation. I got the temperature down to 79 degrees. It hasn't been this cool at this hour since the spring...
