Tiki Time Again



TAWHIRI is the name of the Tiki God of wind and storms and rain. I was hoping for some Tawhiri action today because of huge thunderheads that built up in the 100-degree heat but dissipated once they got within 20 miles of my house. According to the weather gurus, we’re between 3 and 13 percent of where we should be as to rainfall - out here on the Island I’d say at the lower end of the scale. I think we get more dampness from dew than rain! What’s up with this?

Maybe it is because Disneyland invented a fake rain goddess called HINA KALUNA for their “Tiki Room.” According to the Tiki experts, no such goddess exists. Darn those corporate mythologists, Charlie Brown.

It is getting so bad we even wished for tropical storms. Hurricane Emily came in last July and we got nothing over a quarter inch of rain – on the “wet side” of the storm. How can this be?

Anyway, we’ll be having a Tiki “Lighting of the Torch” party on May 20 so come on down if you want … more details to come. And if Tawhiri comes on down as well, we’ll be inside at Palm Street Pier.

Thank you for your Tiki info. I went to the the Tiki link you sent me and got pretty scared! I think I'm more the Trader Vic's type. Today I'm going to go and buy all the Tiki pinatas at HEB in preparations for the great EVENT. Hope everyone will come!

Great Tiki party. Good to meet you and put a face to a name. Forgot to mention my tiki Hawaiian shirt. Strange, but after talking to you and Lori, since I have read your blog entries and BB entries on Sandy Feets sight, I felt like a stalker, knowing all about your move and your life.
Anyway, great to meet the two of you. Look forward to contacting you on our next trip down to SPI in june.
