Beware:  VOG in Paradise 

VOG

Paradise ????

Hawaii:  The weather is warm & sunny year round, right?  Where is the sunshine today?  Why do I see clouds billowing over the quiet seaside village on the Kona coast of the island of Hawaii? This doesn't look like the Hawaiian vacation I envisioned.

VOG

The temperature is still mid-80's but the sky looks so ominous.

We learned that the threat is not an impending storm, but 3,000 tons of volcanic ash and sulfur dioxide called VOG that is spewed out of the Kilauea Volcano almost on a daily basis.

VOG, a form of air pollution, similar to smog is a combination of weather, wind (speed & direction) and volcanic activity.  See VOG index.  For most healthy people low levels of VOG are more annoying than life-threatening.  Those who are more suspectible need to take the necessary precautions to reduce their exposure when the VOG index is elevated.

Origin of VOG:  Hawaii Volcanoes National Park

Good morning Al & Peggy,

I hope you get to Hawaii as there is no other tropical destination quite like it.  The only drawback is the longgggggggggggggggg flightttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt to get there, but next time we will break up the trip and spend several days on the west coast.

James--I will take your comment as a compliment as you are the original Wordsmith.  I will see what else I can come up with.

Merry Christmas.

Mary,

Oh, so interesting.  I had a science teacher, as a kid, who once lived in the Islands. He had so many great photo slides to share and stories to tell.

Merry Christmas,

Steve
