Snow in August in Hawaii. Yup. 

These photos came from the webcams atop Mauna Kea.....

The snow wasn't your fluffy type, but more like sleety snow, so I'm told. But it made things white. 

I've been up on Mauna Kea when it's flurried in July. It's exciting to see the snow coming down around you when you when you know that in a couple of hours you'll be walking along the hot sandy beach far below you. You get kind of giggly and giddy, and it's not from the oxygen deprivation. Snow in Hawaii during the summer is something I'm still not use to. I don't know if there were any lucky tourists up there, but if there were, they got to experience something very special.
