(Update--Souper Sundays Link-up is Open!) Storm Delays & Computer Issues for Souper (Soup, Salad & Sammie) Sundays

An update to my message from Sunday (see below). We got really lucky and Hurricane Douglas veered at the last hours and bypassed the islands. Thank you to all who checked in with me here and on other social media. This one was looking pretty scary. Unfortunately regarding my computer issues, I can't get my personal computer in to be looked at by Apple until tomorrow afternoon. 

I am going to add the link up to the bottom of this page and hold off rounding up the dishes from last week's round up until this coming Sunday. Please feel free to link up your new soup, salad and/or sandwich posts now, and Sunday's roundup will include both weeks' dishes.

From last Sunday:

Just a quick message to my blog readers and Souper Sundays participants. We have Hurricane Douglas bearing down on us this weekend and it's probably the most nervous for a storm I have been since I moved to Oahu nineteen years ago. Keeping my fingers crossed that it continues slightly weakening and moved slightly away from the islands.

I did make a soup and as I was posting, my laptop shut down and now has a disk utility issue. When it hurricanes, it pours. Not sure when I be able to get it fixed so in light of those two challenges, the Souper Sundays post for today will be delayed until things are under control. If you contributed a recipe this week, it will be on a round up as soon as I am able and I will get a new InLinkz link up when I can this week.

Please think positive thoughts for the Hawaiian Islands this weekend. The Big Island and now Maui seem to be past the worst, hoping for the best for the rest of us. 


You can link up your soup for this week here:

Have a happy, healthy rest of your week and stay safe out there!



  1. You’ve been on my mind, I hope the storm disappears! Stay safe, please let us know when you can about how you’re doing! Through your blog or twitter...

  2. Now I'm back...checking on you. I'll send you an email. Hope you are ok, no damage.


  3. Good luck with the storm bypassing you! We were on the Big Island for a hurricane warning a few years ago, and it was pretty scary, but the storm deflected its path, maybe because of the mountain.

    be well... mae at

  4. Thinking of you at this time and hope the storm passes by.

  5. Hopefully the storm will pass you by. Now that we have lived in Florida, I understand how scary and destructive a storm like this can be. Be Well and Safe!
