Attn: [Posted on March 15, 2006 at 4:26 am HST] Looking for Janice and Roy Smolenski... They live on Waiakalua St. I think in Kiluea Farms. .. Laura & Jim Backus Arizona ---- Aloha: Waiakalua Road just missed. Your friends should be fine. They probably woke to a snap, crackle and bright flash of light when the power went, and then the deluge, but they live just to the South of the disaster, so are now thanking their lucky hoku. Phones work.

Aloha Dear Ones: Gae, Jud, Jamesy, Lena, all pets, and heavenly orchard residing up there between Miles 21 & 22. We celebrate your survival, your hale intact, your rough drafts dry, freshly infused with good spirit; close call, eh? A bright flash of light for your wake-up call. Take notes. And we are thankful especially for your two beautiful teenage girls who did well, held tight to their cellphones, and gave quick, accurate reports of the, like, gnarliness. We mourn for your neighbors and the loss around you. Krishna! Shiva! Jesus! Jupiter! Buddah! Pele! Laka! the One! the Many! the King! the Queen! the Chickens! all smile sunshine and manna upon you.
