When is the last time that you felt rain? I mean really felt each drop hit your skin instead of rushing for cover. Try it sometime. It's pretty exhilarating.
Someone recently told me that the hurricane season in Hawaii is July through December (is that true???) which is pretty insane. I'm kind of excited about it though. Well, not the hurricanes.. but the rain.
There really are only two types of days here. Sunny or rainy. And I'd say the temperature stays anywhere from 70 to 90 on our side of the island. The rain is nice because it changes things up a bit.
Recently I've found myself feeling a bit envious of the weather on the mainland (that's what people in Hawaii refer to the other 49 states as). Isn't that weird? Most people would love to spend their days in a place like Hawaii, where the weather easily translates into paradise. I guess it's been so long since I've been in a storm or "bad weather" so the thought of it makes me a bit nostalgic.
Driving through the rain. Hurricane parties. Running through puddles on the way to the subway. Snuggling under a blanket with the sound of rain hitting the window. The sound of thunder. Dancing in the rain.
Then, I woke up to this today:
It was perfect.
