49 Out Of 50 States

Snow on the ground in 49 of 50 states- including Hawaii

From Alabama to Wyoming, all of the States of the United States have some sort of snow cover, except for Florida. Official statistics are not kept on how often this type of event happens. Last year all 50 states had snow on the ground, at the same time. This even includes the tropical island of Hawaii. Hawaii is home to limited mountains but are tall enough in altitude to collect snow. Specifically, Mauna Kea on the Big Island is the mountain top that amasses the most snow in the Hawaiian Island chain.
