It's super cold on the mainland -- snowing in many places, temperatures dropping, dropping, dropping.
This picture was taken in my backyard at 4:30 this afternoon, January 26th. It has been pretty cool here in Hawaii -- but it is most habitable -- shirt sleeves are just fine, thank you very much, and people from the mainland (and lots of local folks) swim in the ocean or their pools every day.
We are lucky, luck, lucky to live Hawaii. Come and visit!
