Quiet Maui Sunday Morning shattered by Pawn shop burglary

Luckily Maui doesn't seem to have too many "in your face" type crimes going on, but living close to the Kahului Police Department and Hospital, I definitely get to hear all the activity.
This Sunday morning after picking up coffee and a paper, I came across a bunch of police cars around the First National Pawn shop in the Kahului industrial area.

I generally have my camera with me at all times and detours through the "less traveled" roads are my preference, which makes an industrial area on a Sunday one of those routes. It's the detours and side trips that always seem to present the photo ops.

I would rather take pictures of the scenery and wild life, but this is a sample of some of the wilder life on Maui, so here it is.

Maui July Rains

July on Maui was a pretty dry month, at least in Kahului, where my yard really showed it. Friday night, the 29th brought some pretty good rain to Kahului, enough to tell me how bad my roof leaks anyways. The day looked pretty much like all the cloudy days we seem to get now, (See or http://MagicMauiFarms for more on the chem trail theories), but I wouldn't have put money on it raining.

The rains went on into the next morning. Despite the rainfall, these pictures of Kanaha Pond show just how dried out the pond has gotten. The tradewinds and cloud cover are keeping Kahului from directly baking, but I wonder how much of the heat is trapped close to the surface by the blanket of clouds.
