    One can only hope.
    Paul, I agree. Hot days in the summer are just weather. But these cold days in winter are climate, and indicative of global cooling. I just wish these deniers would stop denying the cooling science. It's maddening!

    Hah! Good one.
    How am I suppose to explain the rise in average global temperatures?
    Maybe the sun is getting hotter.

    I just wish some of you global cooling deniers would start listening to me.

    Maybe you think it's just "weather" when it snows in Hawaii, but I think you should recognize reality- global cooling is upon us and we only have a short time to address it. Let's not wait until there's an iceberg travelling down Victory Parkway. By then it will be too late.

    I'm stunned.

    Snowfall at an elevation of 10,000 feet. Who could have imagined?

    Ignore the troll. He is either trolling or incredibly obtuse. Either way, not worthy of a response.

    The article DID say it was the lowest elevation at which Hawaii has ever received snow. I didn't get all the way to the top of Haleakala back in November (when I was there for the Maui Invitational...not so humble brag), but it was definitely cold on that winding mountain road back from Hana. And then you get to Wailea, and it's 70 degrees.

    Jealous of your Maui invitational deal. Have been there a number of times. Don't drink and drive on the road to Hana.
    As to the snow, hell, we get snow at 807 ft above sea level here in Sparkle City. Even Charleston has had snow.
    It does continue to amaze me how so many people, including our president, are confused about climate/weather.
    Of course a lot of people for a long time thought the earth was flat...so there is that.

    Haleakala IS a touch closer to the equator than Sparkle City.

    I'm pretty sure '87 is just kidding, which makes it funny. Pretty sure.
