When Snow fell on Waikiki

Sunshine turned to cold sleet Palm trees froze in place Tourists walked down white streets. to shop for hats and boots Beach boys left the beaches; Surfboards were turned to sleds. Rather than surfing waves they slid down Diamond Head. No more graceful hula; grass skirts became passé. Dressed in lederhosen, slap-polka was the rage. Don Ho found a new song to thrill his many fans ‘Tiny toddies,’ every- one, makes us all feel warm. Suzanne Delaney
