With more than 10 years of experience as a professional writer, Megan holds a degree in Mass Media from her home state of Minnesota. After college, she chose to trade in her winter boots for slippahs and moved to the beautiful island of Oahu, where she has been living for more than five years. She lives on the west side but is constantly taking mini-road trips across the island and visits the neighboring islands whenever she can getaway. She loves hiking, snorkeling, locally-grown coffee, and finding the best acai bowl on Oahu.
Our island paradise receives an average of 271 sunny days each year – compared to just 205 days for the national average – but they don’t call it the Rainbow State for no reason. While we love a good rainbow, unfortunately, that also means Hawaii is no stranger to tropical storms and flash flooding. That was evident more than ever this week when major parts of the island chain were inundated with rain and flash floods caused devastation across the state.
