Snow in Hawaii?

Contrary to popular belief, it actually does snow in Hawaii.  Practically every year snow falls at the peaks of the three tallest volcanoes (Mauna Loa, Mauna Kea and Haleakala).  With all three of these volcanoes reaching higher than 10,000 feet, snow rarely is seen below 9,000 feet.

As seen in the picture here, snow fell at 13,796 feet and overlooks the warm Pacific below where it's a balmy 80 degrees.
