One Thing I Haven't Figured Out

is why the mention of rain fills Hawaiians with such dread. 

If it were a cyclone, I could understand... but just a rainy day?

When we were here in November '13, it had just stopped raining, and the transportation captain outside the airport was apologizing for the taxis being an hour behind schedule. 

When Anchorage received 39" of snow overnight in 2002, the airport shut down... for 45 minutes. Then things went right back to normal. 

Nope, I don't get it.

Maybe there's a notion that there should never be a rainy day in paradise.

Cathy, I seriously believe that to be the case.
