and then went home. What you are watching above, is the water coming in up high, and then being sucked out and yes, that is the dry reef which is usually a few feet under the water and then the water coming back in again. We stayed up for a few more hours watching the warnings and then slowly fell asleep... to wake up in the morning to an e-mail and text message from the school saying that we were still expected to attend class that morning. Yes. We were the only school on the island still in session. We did not get much more than some dirtier beaches and broken river mouth. Maui and the Big Island had some flooding but no major damage. During this whole ordeal, Jake was sick, and still is. Poor guy, it is so sad.
