We were heading back from the Waikele Outlet Mall and couldn't understand why there was such a big traffic jam.
Not again. Smoke in the distance. The traffic jam was because the Honolulu Police Department had to close of H1. According to KGMB TV: The fire’s direction of travel and proximity to the H-2 freeway has caused the HFD to request that the Honolulu Police Department (HPD) close the Northbound H-2 freeway at the H-1 and H-2 merge.
This time we could see the flames from our window.
My mother was oblivious to it all. She didn't want to leave her nishime dish that she was busy nurturing. We told her to make a lot because my brother loves this Japanese stew as well as Art's cousin. She had to use the big pot but then couldn't look into it so she needed the ladder to make sure her epicurean delight was looking just so. Does she have a recipe? I've never seen it. One of these days, I'll just have to watch her and write it all down.
