Hawaii vs. Chicago Winter Humor


Just sharing a little winter humor…I grew up just outside Chicago, so I GET it. What about you? (With thanks to Linda Koukis. Edited for Hawaii…)

70° F: People in Hawaii shiver uncontrollably; people in Chicago are still sunbathing.
60° F: Hawaiians wish they had furnaces; people in Chicago go swimming.
50° F Hawaiians don coats, thermal underwear, gloves and wool hats; people in Chicago throw on a light jacket.
40° F: All the plants in Hawaii die; Chicagoans plant gardens.
20° F: Hawaiian’s cars won’t start; people in Chicago drive with the windows down.
15° F: People in Chicago have the last cookout before it gets cold.
0° F: All the people in Hawaii have frostbite. Chicagoans close the windows.
10° below zero: Hawaiians move en masse to Las Vegas. The Girl Scouts in Chicago are selling cookies door to door.
25° below zero: Hawaii evaporates; people in Chicago get out their winter coats.
40° below zero: Washington, DC runs out of hot air; people in Chicago finally let the dog sleep indoors.
100° below zero: Santa Claus abandons the North Pole. Chicagoans get frustrated because they can’t start ‘DA car.’
460° below zero: All atomic motion stops (absolute zero on the Kelvin scale); people in Chicago start saying, ‘cold ’nuff for ya?’
500° below zero: Hell freezes over. The Cubs win the World Series.

Keep smiling! (And stay warm).

  1. Last Sunday it was 15 degrees an hour south of Chicago. I grilled on the back patio in two inches of snow. The pork chops were great.

  2. LOL perfect. I live in Omaha, NE (for now) after it was negative -11
    and “warmed up” to all of 15 degrees, suddenly people were saying just how much better it felt outside. I compare it to the woman who is excited that her husband bought her a last minute anniversary card from a gas station on his way home from a night at the bar.

    • Aloha Kenneth,

      Thank you for sharing! My sister sent me a screenshot showing that the temperature got to 47° with the caption: “What a difference a week makes!” I know she’s much happier, and I’m sure you are too.
      Glad that’s over for all of you.
      Aloha, Jamaica
