With the probability there is still snow on Hawaii’s Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa peaks, today marks the rare occasion of snow on the ground in all 50 states. The 13,000-foot Hawaiian peaks typically see snow every winter and got a dumping a couple weeks ago.

University of Oklahoma meteorological graduate student Patrick Marsh hopes to get pictures of snow on the ground today from all 50 states. Not sure if he’ll make it, but Dewey from Detroit has posted a song to mark this unusual event. You probably know the tune.
