Scads of yardwork is an understatement. SCADS.
These tiny purple flowers may be pretty, but they're an invasive weed. WHACK.

Exploring. The flood moved around a bunch of boulders, sent all kinds of debris downstream, and cleared the banks of plants. (bonus for us: no need to whack path back)
Giant Albezia tree downed.
A brief ... ever so brief ... walk out to the pier before jumping back into the evening convoy line (the evening convoy is the only "short loop" roundtrip into Hanalei for quickie grocery runs, 80min). The first couple weeks after the flood, there was no ocean under the pier because so much silt had washed out onto the beach from the river. Even in May, the water level at the end of the pier was too shallow to jump off the pier and into the water.
