Congratulations, Florida, You're The Only US State Without Snow

After winter storms dumped a rare blanket of snow on the deep south only Florida managed to stay snow-free. Even Hawaii has some snow on the ground — Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea get snow all winter, says CNN.

From CNN:

The only state that has avoided this icy blast is Florida. Does that make you want to go on a nice, warm vacation to the Sunshine State? You’re not alone.

Put another way, that means snow is present in 69.4 percent of the lower 48, which is more than double than December. This is extremely unusual, though it’s hard to put a date on when this last happened because records aren’t kept on this kind of event.

Meanwhile, FlightStats is reporting “excessive” delays at most of the airports on the east coast.

If you’re out there trying to travel… how’s it going?
