My wife and I were living on Maui a few years ago and had the opportunity to buy an acre on the Big Island at a reasonable price so we decided to move. We moved next to a friend and helped him to build on the acre next to ours. We were going to start our house when I noticed the vog from the volcano was really affecting my health so decided to come back to Lacomb.
Guess where the site on the Big Island was located: Yeah, you guessed it ... Leilani Estates! We really dodged a bullet.
Mike Baxter on "Last Man Standing," with tongue in cheek, said, "It's hard to feel sorry for pretty 18-year-old girls."
I'm saying, without tongue in cheek, feel sorry for the people in Leilani Estates, they have nowhere to go and are losing everything. There is no such thing as volcano insurance!
Before you go to bed tonight, do something you never thought you would; pray for our screwed-up government and the folks on the Big Island.
