Aloha kākou e kuʻu mau hoa kilokilo,
ʻO Lono ka pō mahina o kēia lā pule nei. Lono is the moon phase on todayʻs Sunday. So in Hilo Gangeh, itʻs been all about the signs of Lono. The day started off with huge pūʻoʻa (cumulonimbus clouds) marching in from the northwest. Not long after that Lono himself came into town with huge rolling thunder, lightning, Kona winds, high surf and rain. Currently, thereʻs a crisp cold air which may mean weʻve got some snow or ice up on Maunakea.
Tonight Gangeh, itʻs all about fishing on the low tide for limu eating fish, mullet, muheʻe (squid) and heʻe (octopus). However, makaʻala (be mindful) of the rough waves and also for sharks cruising close inshore as one of our traditional chants explains that this is the month when: Nā niho ʻai kalakala ka hana a ka niuhi. The biting sharp teeth is the activity of the man-eating sharks.
And that Gangeh is your predication for Lono on this cold crispy day in Hilo…. Aloha
