By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 09:53 p.m. HST, May 28, 2012

A high surf advisory was issued for the eastern shores of Oahu and other islands through 6 p.m. Tuesday by the National Weather Service this afternoon.

The east-facing shores of Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Maui and Hawaii Island, which were placed under the advisory about 4 p.m., could see surf rise to six to eight feet.

Strong tradewinds are bringing rough surf to those shores, the National Weather Service and city Department of Emergency Management reported. The high surf could produce strong rip currents and localized beach erosion, the city said.

Why warn us? Just let it be. Sometimes I hibernate (really) like Yogi Bear, which is why u do not see me galloping around for maybe a month or more at a time, AND if feel so out of it that when I emerge from my cocoon and sprout my wings like a brand new born monarch butterfly, I soar into the heavens like the proud bird: Hawaiian Airlines, fly and fly and be free, brought to you by the makers of Tylenol. Now back to the program. Ha ha ha ha.
