Parts of the US state of Hawaii have received a winter weather warning, with up to three feet (90cm) of snow over the past few days.
Weather experts say that it is not unusual for snow to fall in tropical Hawaii, but rarely has it fallen so heavily at such low altitudes.
The snow is heaviest around two of the island's highest peaks, Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa.
Meteorologist Matt Foster told the Los Angeles Times that while Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa - both of which are nearly 14,000ft (4,260m) - are sometimes hit by snowfall five or six times a year, two to three feet of snow across the rest of the island in "a few short days is at the higher end of what we'd typically get".
Hawaii is such a neat place!! I've been to the rainest island a few years ago, Kauai. I absolutely loved it. There was something magical about it that I can't quite put into words. Maybe it was who I was with or just my mood at the time or both. But I'd love to go back.
