Blog: A taste of what you may find on Maui

Beautiful unseasonably cool weather

We’ve lived on Maui for almost 3 1/2 years now. Funny the questions people ask. The first is, ‘do you get rock fever?’ The second is, ‘do you miss the seasons?’

Do I get rock fever – no, I don’t. I find with living, working and raising a family here, we are too busy to get rock fever. At least that’s the way it is for me.

But do I miss the seasons? Oh boy… yes I do! Do you know how boring it is to always wear summer clothes? (I know, cry me a river, what a problem to have, right?) Yes, it’s a lot cheaper than buying new winter clothes for growing kids, but after a while you miss wearing long pants and sweaters. I went window shopping at the Shops at Wailea the other day and walked into my sister’s favorite clothing store. They had some great outfits there – but when am I going to wear long sleeves or even three quarter length sleeves here in Kihei? By the way, yes, our stores carry winter-ish clothes.

We had a storm system pass through Kihei early Sunday morning and have enjoyed some cooler weather since! I’ve been loving it! On Sunday I don’t think it even hit 80F in Kihei (down from 87F just days before). Monday and Tuesday were cool (80ish) and windy (lovely!), today is still cooler than normal, but the winds have died down and it’s humid again. I’ve enjoyed our little reprieve from the heat. It’s been perfect hot tub weather! But no worries, I’m sure it will warm up again soon!
