    It's very fitting that Hawaii is getting snow for the President's holiday trip! I mean global warming has to be happening! :lol: I mean snow in Hawaii is very VERY rare occurence and only global warming can make it cold enough to make it happen :eusa_eh:!

    Does it snow in Hawaii?

    This post is “s-no-w” joke. Honestly, it’s not.

    You might be surprised to learn snow does fall on Hawaii almost every Winter. Just a few days ago, Hawaii’s Big Island peaks of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea got a beautiful blanket of snow. You can read the news about it and see a video here.

    Hawaii’s many diverse climates really fascinate me. We often think of Hawaii as being a tropical beach paradise. So, it’s puzzling to accept that these Hawaiian Islands receive snow – considering that they are situated in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and near the equator!

    The following photo is from our collection when we toured the top of Mauna Kea for sunset and stargazing back in March 2008. What a mind-boggling scene to see snow on volcanic cinder cones.

    Actually, snow in Hawaii is not rare due to the altitude of the volcanos (as can be seen in one of the photos in your link.

    Snow in Florida, on the other hand, is quite rare.

    Louisiana would be another state that would be unlikely to get much snow.

    But both Alabama and Mississippi extend north enough that they get some snow.

    And Texas is all over the place.
