So … America … Are You Tired of Winter Yet?
Folks on the Big Island of Hawaii stepped outside this morning and looked up at the peak of Mauna Kea, topping off at 13,803 feet above sea level.
Some folks lament the fact that we have missed the chance for a perfect 50-out-of-50. Not me. One of the reasons I came to Hawaii from Connecticut almost 48 years ago was because I never, ever, wanted to shovel snow again.
As the crow flies, Mauna Kea is about 110 miles from my home here on Maui, and that’s close enough. (It’s 74 degrees here at the moment. I just checked.)
