Thumbs down Vog UNAPPRECIATION thread

never in my life have I contemplated suicide (hyperbole, chill fam) until this frickin' vog is causing me to gag (and sometimes vomit)

If I were general manager of Hawaii, I'd sign and trade the volcano to california for earthquakes and a 8% GE plus a 5th round draft pick.

i dunno mike? they can keep the 8% ge. looks like our beloved mayor wants us taxpayers to cough up 4 million to keep "the boat" afloat. think i heard about that on the news the other day? or, did i read it in the paper? sorry, i'd post the link but my brain is a wee bit "voggy" at the moment.

We keep a steady supply of albuterol, loratadine, and beclomethasone for miserable times as these. I take beclomethasone every day for asthma maintenance, but the albuterol inhalers dot the house, about as much as my reading glasses do! Before she took her 4th-grade Big Isle trip last week, Kid 1 was suffering from the vog. I was amazed that it caused her eyes to get bloodshot. The doctor is having us give the girls the albuterol and the loratadine twice daily through the vog times.

Tradewinds are back (albeit somewhat light) here on the windward side, and most of the vog has vanished already.
Thank you Jesus! (Or insert deity of your choice.)

a big mahalo to the wind god/goddess. sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but them meterologists seem to think that the tradewinds will be short lived and the return of the VOG is in our very near future. cough!

From my perch, Manoa Valley is almost clear. Green prevails; white, fluffy clouds, too! Still a little haze but not enough to be lethal like this morning...couldn't see Manoa Valley AT ALL!

It was just another morbid joke I threw out there. Fits right next to doing a job hunt by going through the obituaries.

It's funny how a small hole in the ground can spew that much smoke as to blanket the entire island chain. I work out in Kapolei and get a wider view of the island's land mass. It's just amazing how much crud is coming from this volcano.

Anywayz, I've had this sinus thing for over 1 month and have been seeing the doctor. Still can't figure out if I have a chronic infection, of if it's the vog. Antihistamines provide some relief, but it's never gone entirely. Darn!

Bobinator, you might need a neti pot. Or some such cleansing. My dad had chronic sinus problems, and the ENT doc did something like this in the office for him. Now I guess you do it yourself.

Volcanic fOG vs LAva haZE? Same-same, me thinks!

It sure is overcast in town but at least I can see the green cliffs of Manoa Valley!

I find the best place to be on voggy days like these is at work where there's air conditioning! I have asthma, and I'm glad to be there where I can breathe freely (when my colleagues aren't immersing every square foot of their body with scent).

I was on the Big Island today, at Wheel of Fortune. Kona is like soup. [No, I was not a contestant, it was work related.]

Sorry to hear about every who has respiratory issues with the vog

On the plus side, the vog plus a full moon reflected over the ocean makes for a beautiful blue night.

here in kona... the officials seem to be doing nothing to inform us of the health hazards associated with vog....somedays it is horrendous.....cant see more than 1/4 mile...mixed with rain clouds.....it really seems to be changing the weather patterns here...flowers and vegetable growers have suffered heavy losses...so far the coffee seems unaffected......for those that are at resperatory risk there seems to be little being done......they say they are studying it....in ,my experience, expensive studies usually confirm the obvious and put roadblocks in the way of logical solutions....Ted Hong a senate candidate on hilo side has proposed creating places of refuge.......a shelter that is air conditioned with powerful airfilters and backup generators....at somne central location in each community here on hawaii.......i think this is a good idea...those at risk will have an option...elderly and the young and those with asthma.....and in the event there is a major eruption event we could all find shelter there........the most recent deaths from the volcano have all been breathing related...toxic low lying gasses that catch people by surprise...this could happen on a larger scale......it happenedto a large group of hawaiian warriors out on th a kau desert ...it could happen again
