Did you hear about the blizzard that hit Hawaii over this past weekend?
No, I didn’t horribly misspell North Dakota, Minnesota or Alaska. I really did mean Hawaii.
As I mentioned in this post, the big island of Hawaii receives snow on its two tall volcanic peaks every winter, and so far the winter of 2021-2022 is turning out to be quite remarkable.
Over the weekend of December 10-12 Hawaii’s twin mountain tops were ravaged by literal blizzard conditions, complete with 100 MPH winds and horizontal snowfall.
Sadly, the lower regions of the islands were inundated with torrential rains and unbelievable flooding while the blizzard was playing out at the higher altitudes.
If you’ve never watched it snow in Hawaii, check out this incredible video of the blizzard in action…

Pretty wild, right?
The entire state of Hawaii truly is an island paradise, but as this video shows it can also be an enigma.
