Pilipa’a 15’s arrive in Columbus, Ohio (updated)

The Pilipa’a 15’s arrived in Columbus, Ohio this afternoon after 3 flights and nearly 12 hours of traveling. It was very hot when we arrived (nearly 100F). The girls were tired and hungry and were ready to head out for food almost immediately after we checked in at the Best Western. We took a short drive to a nearby Subway restaurant and noticed a few gray clouds on the way over. Within about 10 minutes, a thunderstorm rolled through with 50+ MPH winds and sideways rain where we were and there were reports of 2-inch hail in the Columbus area.
We finished our meal and adjusted our plans to head in to town, opting to stay out of the bad weather return to the hotel for the evening instead. We returned to a dark hotel as the storm has knocked out power around us, but the girls are in good spirits and having a good time so far.

Update: Here’s a story from one of the local papers on today’s storm: click here

We have our first of two practices tomorrow and we’ll have more pictures and posts soon.
