Baby, It's Cold Outside...but not in Hawaii

So, right now in Colorado it's 10 degrees...BELOW ZERO. And with the windchill, it's 30 degrees below zero. I didn't even know that could be a thing. And it SHOULDN'T be a thing unless you live above the tundra line. I swear that I saw a polar bear and a penguin on my way to work...or maybe that was just a tall guy in a white furry jacket escorting a nun...

That being said, I think today's blog post should be about someplace warm. So, let's talk about Hawaii.

1. Is the 50 state in the Union. It became a state in 1959.

2. Is the only state made up entirely of islands.

3. Is the only state that is not geographically connected to mainland United States.

4. Is the only state that can grow coffee. I have had said coffee and it is delicious.

5. Is the only state that has a royal palace.

6. Is the only state that doesn't have a straight line for it's state boundary.

7. There are only 12 letters in the Hawaiian alphabet: Vowels: A, E, I, O, U,  Consonants: H, K, L, M, N, P, W; Which, coincidentally seem to be the only letters I ever get when playing scrabble.

8. It is the most isolated population center on Earth: 2,390 miles from California, 3,850 miles from Japan and 4,900 miles  from China.

9. Is the only state whose land area is increasing, due to volcanic activity

10. Average temperature in February is 74 degrees. *Sigh*
