West Wind Whips Away Vog!

What a difference wind direction makes. This was the view today of the same vista that looked so gray and poisonous last week Wednesday:

The view looking south from Old A was equally clear:

I don't think I've ever been on the Kona side when it's as clear as this. Wow.

In mitigation, at least the vog has a little time to disperse when it gets over there although I know it can be bad. Here, when the wind is in the wrong direction, the vog is unbelievable.

And then I watch the local TV news from Honolulu and get pissed off when they talk about getting some haze and how awful it is.
