Thankfully, the weather has cooled down. What a relief after so many days of unrelenting heat. When I first moved to da mainland, this one wahine said, “Oh, but you don’t feel the heat here like you do in Hawaiʻi!” Not.
Oh sure, Kona weather with no trades is miserable. But most days have the cooling trade winds to keep everything comfortable.
Like I said. Too dang hot. No trades. Just hot. Three different days of hot. I donʻt know how my friend in Arizona stands it. Maybe she doesn’t feel the heat like she did in Hawaiʻi??
SO thankful it’s gotten a bit cooler – and that I was able to escape to the beach on Saturday!
Oh, you were so fortunate to have been away from the heat! And the beach! It doesn’t get better than that, does it?
I haven’t experienced summer on the mainland but all my friends who have said that 100 degrees in Vegas feels a lot better than our humid Kona wind days, because there is no humidity. So the ‘dry heat’ makes it more tolerable. They said your sweat evaporates unlike here where right now I am sitting in front of a fan and a portable a/c and STILL sweating. Gawd I long for 30-40 degree weather right now….I’d sit on the lanai in my shorts and have a smoke, that was nirvana for me.
Oh, how well I remember Kona weather! Turning my pillow over and over, trying to get it cool. And yeah, there is something about dry heat. That said, however, when there’s only a hot wind and 103° here, yuk. I hope the trades come back for you soon!
Aisus, Moki-chan, I no can hando da heat! I’m so glad the weather has turned again and it’s cloudy and in da 60s up here. Hope your heat wave is pau for now too. (Although, I hope it doesn’t rain this Sunday – our annual (outdoor) `ukulele picnic is this weekend!)
Me eeda!!!! It’s good here, too. How did we ever stand Kona weather? Your picnic sounds wonderful!!
