Maui Day 1: Rain

Posted by parsingtime on December 12, 2008

It took us 23 hours to get to Hawaii because of crazy delays, and given that we got up at 3:30 in the morning when we finally arrived in Maui we had enough energy to shower, pretend to give each other a kiss goodnight and pass out.  It’s now 5:30 in the morning and the breakfast doesn’t open for a another couple of hours so Husband is watching CNBC and I’m blogging. It is also supposed to rain for the next five days, something that according to the locals never happens.  It was raining in Charlotte when we left.  We traveled 23 hours to arrive in America to weather similar to what we left, albeit 20 degrees warmer.

On our 23 hour journey we experienced the brillance that is the average person.  Let ‘s keep in mind that this particular woman was dressed well and in her late thirties or early forties.

Did the announcer just say the flight was 9 hours 41 minutes?


But, but we leave here at 10:30 and get to Hawaii at 3:30? That’s only five hours.

Uh, well 3:30 is the time in Hawaii and there is a five hour time difference between there and here.

Wow, I just never knew it took 10 hours to get to Hawaii.

    Why does that always happen? When Jeff and I went to Hawaii a few years ago, the weather really turned and everyone was like “oh its unusually cold and windy, etc etc”…just our luck!
