49 states dusted with snow; Hawaii's the holdout
Yahoo/AP ^ | 2-13-10 | SETH BORENSTEIN

Forget red and blue — color America white. There was snow on the ground in 49 states Friday. Hawaii was the holdout.

It was the United States of Snow, thanks to an unusual combination of weather patterns that dusted the U.S., including the skyscrapers of Dallas, the peach trees of Atlanta and the Florida Panhandle, where hurricanes are more common than snowflakes.

More than two-thirds of the nation's land mass had snow on the ground when the day dawned yesterday, and then it snowed ever so slightly in Florida to make it 49 states out of 50.

I’m surprised there isn’t snow on the Big Island, but I think this is a little early in the season. But then isn’t there a heat wave down in South America? Maybe it’s unseasonably hot down there, and unseasonably cold up here, and Hawaii gets the benefit of both extremes and it cancels out.

I still think there may be some snow up on Mauna Kea, the webcams don’t show anything but they generally have some on the peak 365.

Where’s Al Gore?

Has he commented about this unusually severe winter?

What about global warming?

A few years ago, there was an unusually warm winter, which the MSM trumped as evidence of global warming. So why isn’t an unusually severe winter evidence of global cooling?

The Dem’s now need to enact some sort of stimulus bill to allow Hawaii to buy all the snow it needs for the poor and disadvantaged children in the state ... how many of them have not been able to play and understand the implications of having to trudge to school and WalMart through snow ... /sarc

They probably mean only one state hasn’t received snow fall this year.

I was just chalking it up to reporters ignorant of Hawaii, however, I’ve been looking through the webcams and don’t see any on the peaks so they may be right.

More than 75% of Georgia was snow covered last night, likely a first. Global warming aint what it cracked up to be!

AP still made not that this had NOTHING to do with global warming, as they said, weather is not climate.

I happen to know it is so cold in Hawaii right now that the locks guarding the Big Wee Wee's birth records are frozen solid ... and won't thaw for at least three more years!

There was snow on Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa last November when the weather was wetter. El Niño is causing drought conditions on the Big Island now so it's high and dry at the summits to the delight of the astromers.

It'll change by March. I've seen snow up there as late as May.

California Sierras have a massive snow pack....

The mountain ranges surrounding the OC/LA area of California look like the Swiss Alps....

Very cool.

Down on the coastal plain of So. Cal the current weather is bright, sunny, blue skies, a mild on-shore Pacific Breeze, and 75 degrees!!!

Global Warming! We knew that the planet is cooling down so it means it must really be heating up!

The hills above West Hollywood look more like the Swish Alps.

We took the kids sledding for the first time in their lives the other weekend. It was just 2 hours North at 7K Ft altitude. They loved it and want to go back. I may try again come March but it will probably all melt by then. February is booked but I just love this place. It never gets boring.

Usually there is snow in Hawaii this time of year on the peaks, but this year is an unusual exception because we are having a drought.

The peaks are barren of snow so far.
