I am guessing the winds are a little over 25 mph and HECO can't handle that....as usual.

A 45 minute outage in east Honolulu and they get a newspaper article coverage. Rarely do I see coverage about outages on the windward side (and believe me, we get 'em; and fairly often too). Even more rare are the results of an outage's investigation. Life's good when you're a monopoly that's protected by the PUC.
