How about that weather?

So how's the weather in your neck of the woods? It's been pretty chilly here in paradise, especially at night! I've been secretly getting up after Joel is soundly snoring and closing all the windows because I'm cold! Now, when I complain about this to my friends on the mainland I don't usually get much sympathy and in fact I'm often made fun of. People just can't believe I would actually describe some of our weather as "chilly". But I'm not alone. Don't believe me? Take a look at this graphic of our 8-day forecast for this week from our local Island Weather news report (which is always out of Honolulu, so our temps on Maui may vary by a few degrees):Notice the word "chilly" across about half the days? Seeeee? I TOLD you people it was cold!! :-)

LOL! I get made fun of too here in south Texas. We had a wind chill of 19 a few days ago, which is C-O-L-D here! But at least we don't have sub zero temps...

LOL!!! Cold is when you have to scrape the inside of the car windshield. Iw as so cold a couple weeks ago, that after starting up the car my breath created condensation that froze on the inside of the windshield!!!

I DO sympathize, I really do!! I have been in Colorado for the last 30 years but grew up in Kaneohe, Oahu and I remember the cold, cold nights in the 60's!!!! LOL People have to remember, there are no furnaces in Hawaii!! I also remember the excitement of running outside early in the morning after a "chilly" night and being so excited that if we exhaled just right, we could see out breath!! LOL

Oh dear, I am trying to feel very sorry for you:) But seeing how my BIL and SIL just got snowed in Philly it's hard...enjoy your chilly weather. Might be the coldest it gets all year.
