It has been raining heavily here in Hawaii, but this is nothing compared to the snow storm on the mainland. I hope my in-laws in Boston are safe and sound. Good luck and best wishes!
I am so glad that I don’t have to endure snow and ice. I had enough of it in New York City, where I lived between 1970 and 1975. Imagine the boiler in the basement malfunctioning and not having heat and hot water for two weeks in the dead of winter. This meant washing my long hair and dirty pots and pans in frigid water. Thank goodness I don’t have to deal with that in Hawaii. Yeah, snow is pretty the first two days, but I get mighty tired of it after a while.
The weather in Hawaii is so much better than the fog in San Francisco. I hated the damp cold as well as the sun going down at 4:30 pm. There was nothing worse than leaving work and making my way home in the dark, dodging dog poo on the sidewalk. No thank you!
Not to mention the smog in Los Angeles. With every breath, my throat would burn from the polluted air. Ugh.
I like the long days and relatively short nights in Hawaii. I like being able to walk outside without a coat and gloves. I like not slipping and falling on icy walkways. I like not shivering in the cold.
I like Hawaii, period.
