If you are from Hawaii, you hate the cold (obligatory Obama post) [edit]

I read this and thought of our mainland alumni:

From the NY Times

The capital flew into a bit of a tizzy when, on his first full day in the White House, President Obama was photographed in the Oval Office without his suit jacket. There was, however, a logical explanation: Mr. Obama, who hates the cold, had cranked up the thermostat.

“He’s from Hawaii, O.K.?” said Mr. Obama’s senior adviser, David Axelrod, who occupies the small but strategically located office next door to his boss. “He likes it warm. You could grow orchids in there.”

When I read: “He’s from Hawaii, O.K.?”, I thought that maybe he showed up in a t-shirt and slippers or something. 

[edit]  Alright, alright – maybe my standard for “cold” is all wrong:

From the Honolulu Advertiser:  Baby, it’s cold outside — by Hawaii standards

It was another cool night across the state — at least by Hawaii standards — with overnight temperatures in many communities hovering in the low 60s.

The coldest-spot award goes to Lihue, Kauai, where the mercury dipped to 59 degrees.

For the record, as I write this, it is 34 F in Washington DC.
