Surprise! Yesterday we had 1-2″ of snow and it came right during the morning rush hour. Apparently the weathermen were unable to predict this weather and it stuck around long enough to sock me with a 2.5 hour commute to work.  My daily drive is 35 miles one way.  It’s been a tough week and I’m trying to focus on our vacation in less than a month.  We’ll be staying with my great aunt and uncle in Ninole. They have a wonderful home right on the the Big Island Coastline. I’ll definitely be taking more photos when we visit.  On this blustery winter day, it already looks very inviting!Ninole
