Even the dry parts of the island are drenched.

As I may have mentioned in a post or two for the past few months that winter is Maui's rainy season. Half of Maui gets most its rain; the western half is in the rain shadow of towering Mount Haleakala. But this week the winds shifted slightly, and normally-dry Kahului got drenched, as did even Lahaina.

I was Doordashing and car camped at Papalaua Beach as I generally do. In the morning I discovered I was lucky not to have floated away in the night.
