The storm brings clear skies; Maui!

Besides bringing rain we so badly needed, the storm did a magnificent job of clearing our skies. Hualalai doesn't look that high (and it's only the third highest peak on this island, fourth highest in the state) but it's higher than anything in North America east of the Rockies (So there, Tennessee and New Hampshire!):

Looking the other way (and for the record, I drove ten whole minutes out of my way to get these photos for you all), Maui was amazingly clear (That little bump at the far left is West Maui):

Amazingly clear:

Finally, there is clearly snow on Mauna Loa, seen over Hualalai's shoulder, although most of the white is a cloud cap, and the image generally is fuzzier than I'd like:
