Weather observation with Uncle Shorty Bertelmann


"Uncle taught us to pin point measurable features of movement and stability.  We analyzed the layers within the clouds and scanned their interaction with atmospheric conditions and land features like the mauna and pu’u. We factored in the strength of the channeling wind of the ʻAlenuihāhā Channel countering the slight breeze from the south west as the sun rose. We kept a picture in our head of the few stars we could see and their movement, along with where the sun met the morning horizon. As we stood there in silence for over an hour listening to Uncle, we observed the shifting and unity of all these elements combined, which led us to what Uncle called the “road or pathway.”  By consistent observation the pathway was revealed to guide us on our journey and point us to our destination."
