'Cause I know how much you love the cold and snow!

Another 3 inches on top of the 6 already... little white topknots on my tikis...







With the way winter is going, these guys might be buried by January!


A lot of the country is getting snow this week... anyone else with snow and tikis to post up photos here?

Topped out at around 10 inches here on Thursday and below zero this morning. I guess I'm going to find out how well hackberry holds up to winter weather.

Funny shot, rodeo.
Gave me a good laugh right before this delayed 11 hour flight to London.

I'm whipped.
Hope I don't fall asleep at Trader Vic's tomorrow night.
Kon-Hemsby had better be entertaining.

"When life deals ya snow, make snow cones". I may find that funny but for people that have to deal with the frozen, slippery white shit all winter long it's about as funny as "when life deals ya AIDS, make lemon AIDS".

Now that's tiki!

Reminds me of visiting Hala Kahiki in January and looking out in the gardens at the tikis under a foot of snow.

The Florida ohana can still do Christmas, although I do miss the change of seasons. Here's a snapshot from my visit to Mai Tiki to see Wayne Coombs - a version of Florida Xmas Flavah 2005!

Poly or not... if the wood has moisture in it and it is in your dry house in the winter it may crack. If the wood is dry it probably won't crack.
Wet wood is swollen, when wood drys it pulls apart because there is no moisture to fill in the gaps.

Coating with poly for outdoors helps shed water and moisture for the most part... cracking and checking is a natural process wood goes through anyhow when it drys,
you just hope it doesn't get too bad.
