YEE HAW!!!!!!!!! WINTER HAS ARRIVED!!!!!!!!!!!!
even 13 at dulles last night and 9 here in state college!! Some of the coldest temps i have ever seen this early in the year.... sign of things to come... warm next week then a big cooldown??? this winter looks like its going to be a fun one!
It seems like winter is arriving everywhere simultaneously this year. It is snowing from Hawaii (I'm not kidding, Mauna Lau is getting pounded today) to Tennessee and all parts in-between. Blizzard conditions stretch from California to Colorado.
The amazing thing is how uniform this all is across the country. Normally winter arrives in one area before another, but that doesn't appear to be the case this year. Pretty cool- wish it was like this every year, but the week before Thanksgiving instead of the week after!
Snowing from Hawaii to Maine... Maybe Planet Earth is taking its just revenge on Haliburton...
If this is earth's idea of revenge... long may Haliburton reign!
Yeah, it will be snowing outside of their jail cells
I KNEW I wasn't crazy when I heard it snows in Hawaii at certain elevations!! Roger, where did you see the info on that?
Maybe it's earth flipping the bird towards the GW conspiracy?
Been there. Mauna Kea, by the way, means White Mountain in the Hawaiian language. And it was called white because the top two thousand and so feet was previously a glacier, now unfortunately down to sporadic snows on its 13,700' peak. There was even a ski club that did trips there in years past but no longer because of safety and environmental concerns. Some folks still do it between the volcanic cones, knows as the Pineapple Bowl. Mauna Loa, the famously active volcano, also gets its share of snow. Haleakala, which I may hike in the summer following my Kalalau trip (I fell in love with Hawaii), is at 10 thousand and nowadays gets snow every 10 years or so.
Yep definitely snows in hawaii. I was vacationing at the big island over winter break 3 or 4 years ago and it rained heavily in then lowlands and poured snow over mauna kea. Was an amazing experience to be able to snorkel and look up at a mountain caked in what looked to be 1-2 feet of fresh near the top! Its one of my lifetime goals to ski hawaii at least once in my lifetime
On my first trip to Hawaii (a business trip) I was catching grief from co-workers, friends, relatives and the wife about going to Hawaii while it was bitter cold and snowy here in Fairfax (Feb.). So I found a post card showing folks skiing the Hawaiian volcanos and sent it home with the note that things in Hawaii were not necessarily as promised by the travel guides. No one bought it!
I think the snow on the upper slopes is still skied. There are no chairs, nor groomers, but when conditions are right (frequently in the mid-winter months) you can ski the big mountains.
