February 1: Hula in the Coola Day

I don’t know who actually created this day, but, as this Texas girl shivers her way through another Michigan winter, I definitely understand the wish for warmer weather. The high today is 17 degrees.

The HIGH

is 17

degrees

Farenheit.

Right.

If that seems normal to you, you really need to think about relocating.

Be that as it may, February 1 is Hula in the Coola Day. The goal of Hula in the Coola is to ditch your winter clothing in favor of a grass skirt and simple top, add some leis and throw a backyard luau in the snow and ice. To cut down on the frostbite, I’d avoid going barefoot.

Actually, as much as I’m ready for warmer weather, I think I’ll wait until it gets here to dress for it. I’ll watch the luau from inside, in my turtleneck, ready to call EMS when you hit hypothermia. 🙂

“God’s voice thunders in marvelous ways;
he does great things beyond our understanding.
He says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth,’
and to the rain shower, ‘Be a mighty downpour.’”

Job 37:5-6
