Birds chirping, wind softly caressing my cheeks, sun’s warmth soothing over my body from hair on my head to pinkie of my toes, a lethargic feeling washes over me. Am I dreaming? Is this what winter supposed to be?
The answer is yes, if you are in Hawaii.
The 50th State consists of eight large islands with Oahu the third largest island being most populous. Two-third of the the Hawaii population reside on the island of Oahu as well as the State’s capital, Honolulu. Since I am visiting Oahu, I will use it as my reference.
Temperatures on the island is amazingly constant year-round. Summer high in upper 80s and winter low in mid 60s with an average difference between daily high and low about 15 degrees Fahrenheit. Thanks to the large surrounding body of water (i.e. the Pacific).
A downside of being surrounded by the largest body of water is humidity. Which makes air conditioning a nice feature. Luckily, Oahu seems to be blessed with ample tradewinds that blows away the uncomfortable moisture.
