People in a state known for some of the most beautiful sights, sounds, and weather you can find anywhere in the United States are suffering from a fierce display of mother nature’s power that most of us can only imagine.
Molten lava from the Kilauea Volcano has destroyed several dozen homes onHawaii’s big island, and has forced hundreds of people from their homes with no end to it’s eruptions in sight.
As of mid-morning today, two new fissures had opened near the bottom of Kilauea, bringing the total to at least fourteen.
And, as if the prospect of getting buried alive in hot liquid straight from near the center of the earth weren’t enough to strike fear in to their hearts, residents within miles of the volcano are breathing sulfur dioxide created by the eruptions prompting health and safety warnings.
And there are earthquakes in that area almost every hour too.
I’m not much of a fan of the winter weather we have to endure around here, but I’ll trade it for molten lava any day.
That’s the way I see it.
