Lights Out

Thunderstorm clouds over Manoa.
A thunderstorm knocked out power in East Honolulu for hours on May 2, 2011.  Power was later restored, but not after a torrential downpour in Manoa.  The residents of the Atherton YMCA had to deal with no lights and no power in their small college dormitory.  Lit by only a handful of battery operated lanterns, and fed by the Blue Truck Teppanyaki Wagon, they hung out and kept each other company through the night.
