Jan 16, 2018

It was an unusually quiet Saturday morning. January 13, 2018. 

I left for work and an accident had closed the road. Traffic was at a standstill. I decided to go to Starbucks, get a coffee, and wait it out. 

It was around 7:15 A.M.

At 8:07 A.M. an emergency alert come over every phone in the place ... and for the next 30-40 minutes I and Hawaii prepared for what might have been our last minutes alive as we were warned of an incoming missile and to take cover.

In this episode, I talk about that moment and day. Yes it was terrifying. As I re-tell the story today, I found the texts and calls I had with my family humorous. I invite you to listen and smile or even laugh along with me today.

Make no mistake, at the time, we weren't laughing nor feeling good. It was sad in my last discussion with Beth, my daughter, as we faced the possibility of knowing this may be the last we talk.

While heavy, I think your will find my account a good listen.

We are all thankful to be here today.
