49 out of 50 states with snow on the ground

A powerful winter storm dumped as much as 2 feet of snow on parts of the Northeast yesterday.  However, the wintry conditions are not confined just to this part of the country.  In fact, as of this morning (January 13), 49 out of the 50 states have locations with snow on the ground.  Florida is the only state where flakes haven’t fallen over the past several weeks, over which much of the country has experienced below normal temperatures and snow.  Take a look here for pictures of the snowy scenes.

P.S. If you are wondering about Hawaii, snowfall has been recorded at the highest elevations of the Big Island’s volcanoes!
