    I would have LOVED to have gotten the snow we were supposed to. Some of Kansas got hit... but the south didn't. We got a little rain... two snow flakes... and umm... it's sunshine now.

    Prop your feet up and enjoy the warmth. I wish I could just stay inside for the rest of winter!

    We haven't received much snow from this storm either. Most of it stayed up in the mountains (where it belongs!).

    However, it was -7 when I came into work this morning, high today is supposed to be a balmy +8 .

    Hawaii forecast:
    "Clear skies with unlimited ceiling call for dropped temperatures overnight - ranging from the high 50s to mid 60s - so bring out those thick quilts and space heaters. Expect the surf on the north shores of Oahu, Maui and Kauai to keep pumping those 30+ walls of water, making it excellent but dangerous for surfers. Those living on the northern shores better make sure they have sandbags handy as some areas are being evacuated as we speak."

    LoL

    I've spent plenty of time and money in your city ;) We usually go to Vegas at least twice a year. Every year for Superbowl Weekend (the last 16 years now) and at least once in the summer. Friends always want to know why we'd go to Vegas in the Summer, this year we were there in September for a milestone Birthday for my wife.

    I keep telling my wife that we need to do other things on our vacation, but she prefers Vegas. Haven't been to Hawaii in a looong time, I think it was before my wife discovered slot machines ;)

    Not offended at all. :p

    Live in CT and Massachusetts (sp?) for a few years, then 9-11 happened and that is what sent me home. Had enuf of the winters.. the snow... and the crazies wanting to bomb everything.

    My sis in in Idaho (Idunno Why) and I know she's freezing her tail off. She keeps telling me to go visit... HAHAHAHAHHA!!! Dun think so!

    My eldest sons is @ Ft. Gordon, GA... he told me they got flurries.
    My younger son is in Allentown, PA - he's begging to come home after digging out his neighbor's car...


    @ five - did you know that we (meaning people in Hawaii) consider Vegas to be the long lost 9th Hawaiian Island? More of my classmates live there than here! How silly is that? :p Is where a lot of people from Hawaii go to vacation.



    Weather for Hawaii today...
    Chilly morning at 59 went to the lower 80's in the mid afternoon. B-E-Utiful skies with surf still pounding our northern shores. Surf's up brah! I going!
