I'm not sure if it is a mispelling or not, but if anyone is wondering if "voggy" is a mispelling, voggy apparently means foggy by means of a volcano. Could still just be a mispelling though if anyone wants to let us know.

This is definitely something that people from Hawaii say. Not a misspelling.

It's a portmanteau of volcanic and foggy. There is plenty of vog in Hawai'i.

From wikipedia: Puna is one of the nine districts of Hawaiʻi County on the Island of Hawaiʻi (the Big Island). It is located on the windward side (east side) of the island and shares borders with the South Hilo district in the north and Kaʻū district in the west.
