The thunder has been making our dogs nervous. Mauna Kea looks lovely in the morning, with snow on the summit.

8. Snow is actually not unusual on this Hawaiian peak at 13,000 feet elevation

The big island includes 80% of the world's climate zones and snow is normal here, though this particular storm could be a bit more severe.

Mauna Loa, at 13,000 feet elevation, is more than twice the elevation of mountains where I live that occasionally get snow even at 5,000 feet.

16. Interesting to find this out...

and %80 of the World's climates through vertical elevation. I know the concept of vertical elevation climes - didn't know how much % this mountain encompassed.

Up the mauna, fill up with snow, bring back to the house, and let the keiki make snowman and snowballs. Good fun!
