  • Now that the hurricane watch is over, wonder if these events that were cancelled can scramble to run again as planned. Like the Okinawan festival can get their tents pitched back up, get everyone back to setup, food prepped, get the word out that the event is back on, etc. Yes, that would take incredible effort by the event organizers but when there is a will, there is a way. Not like everyone got anything else to do except watch UH lose to Michigan on TV in the morning. Most people where ready to hunker down in their homes to ride out the storm but now that hurricane Lester has moved safely away, they need to do something fun.
