We’re in the midst of the most severe winter storm in about forty years.
Gresham, just North of us, has been declared in a state of emergency; 50% of the roads are impassable and the National Guard has been called in.
We’ve been stuck here at home for just about a week. First we got snow. Then we got a silver thaw (ice ontop da snow). Then another 2 feet ontop that. The weather kane says it’s the first time he’s ever seen that happen. Usually the ice melts. But oh no, not this time!
We are almost out of fuel oil, but the woodstove is keeping us pretty warm. We also use space heaters and pray the power doesn’t go out. Or branches fall ontop da roof. Or da lanai collapses. Or my cold no gets worse. So far so good.
So. Wanna see hakum I stay at home taking ukubillion photos of birds at da feeders and snow stuffs instead of doing my Kalikimaka shopping in town?
Try look. My kawila stay undaneat dea somewea.
Yeah, I know, I wen forget to pull out my wipers. But what good would it have done?
Da driveway. Try look Kukui and how high da snow stay. Das Nolemana’s kawila ova dea.
So. ‘As why hard, yeah?
