, Hawaii winter snow storm 2016.jpg
It has been a strangely warm and dry winter around Denver, Colorado. February and March being the historically snowiest months, but the only snow I can find is the dump of ice scrapings in front of a local ice rink. Temperatures above 70 degrees this week. Yesterday, I was driving around in my T-shirt with the car windows down. In the past few years, the southern states get more ice storms in the winter and the north-east coast gets heavier snow storms, but the weather in Colorado is getting sunnier with significantly less snow (apart from on the mountains, but that's where the snow should be). I also heard that Chicago has gotten hardly any snow this year. Since Dec. 18, Chicago O'Hare International Airport has measured a pathetic 0.6 inches of total snowfall through the end of February. The average Chicago snowfall for that period is 23.4 inches. Denver did a little bit better, racking up 7.9 inches of snow through March 2, 2017, but still failed to top Hawaii that got a blizzard that dumped 8 inches of snow on Hawaii's Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa peaks in a single sitting two weeks ago.
