Surfing Jova's waves on Friday

    Sliding through crazy seas on a thin board - buy this photo here

    The Hawaiian Islands nearly had a hurricane hit this week. Hurricane Jova turned aside before reaching our shores.

    Jova’s close visit has created some big and wild surfing waves the last few days.

    But while we were spared the winds and enjoying the waves here in Hawaii, massive Hurricane Rita, spinning in from the Gulf of Mexico, has made landfall near the Louisiana and Texas boarder, and is now raging inland with strong winds and heavy rains.

    My heart goes out to those hundreds of thousands in the storms path--especially to those that will be struck a second time as they are still painfully recovering from Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans and surrounding area.

    Rita could potentially undo all the fragile repairs done to the levees in New Orleans.
    I sure hope not--they have had more than enough sorrow there for this century.

      There is so much detail in the water in the large version!

      Consider adding this to the Athletes In Action group.
