Hawaii has experienced a heat wave this past September and October. It has been humid and close to 90 degrees and high humidity non stop.
September is usually the hottest month in Hawaii, thus the reason many locals vacation in September. October is the month where temperatures lower to the high 70's and low 80's usually with Hawaii's famous tropical trade winds.
I moved to Hawaii in 1999 from Alaska and would worship the sun and just loved being outdoors absorbing all I could after leaving the frozen tundra. Fast forward 15 years later and I now wear a hat and carry an umbrella everywhere I go. The umbrella is not for the rain , it is to shield the sun.
I used to laugh to myself silently (LTMS) when I first moved to Hawaii and saw people with their umbrellas in the hot sun? I thought they were disillusioned thinking it was raining out?
I have become intolerant of the sun, you've heard of lactose intolerant? I have become Sun intolerant. The heat from the sun is very uncomfortable to my skin and I am always trying to shield myself in shade.
It is said, "the grass is always greener on the other side."
Here's to a cloudy day.
