3 1/2 inches of rain over the weekend in Haiku Maui HI

3 1/2 inches of rain over the weekend in Haiku Maui HI

3.5 inches of rain

Well just when I was bragging about the great January weather we've been having here in Hawaii, we got slammed with a weather system that dumped 3.5 inches of rain on us on Saturday and Sunday. Not just in Haiku, but other areas of Maui too. It can stop anytime!

On the other hand, we were needing some rain since it had been getting so dry and dusty, and the garden was needing watering daily. The catchment water tanks are filled up once again, and with the forecast they'll probably get flushed out as well in the next week. 

Compared to what's happening on the mainland, I can't complain.

At least all this water is great for the winter garden, as you can see from the salad greens and kale here. Between showers I was able to pick enough greens for a salad, and some papayas and pea pods too. Living in Haiku Maui is great, rain or shine!
