    ROFL of trees, shrubs, plants, grass and rock. Though I would love to see it covered in skiable snow in winter.

    I was expecting worse
    Amazing that with the winds they experienced, only one reported death so far.
    Mindblowing if you have been there and seen the kinds of buildings so many of the locals live in

    It was a very quick moving storm system and the eye only crossed a small part of the island a fair way from Nadi .

    Oh by my reckoning Nadi was about 40-50 km from the eyewall at closest approach. That is a fair way
