According to CNN, there is snow on the ground right now in 49 states, with Florida being the only exception. How unusual is this? “This is extremely unusual,” says CNN, “though it’s hard to put a date on when this last happened because records aren’t kept on this kind of event.”
Actually, you non reporting nor remembering lazy morons it happened exactly 11 months ago, with the only difference being that the holdout then was Hawaii, and that's only because no one wanted to hike up a volcano to see if there was any snow on it. A USA Today article reporting on the phenomenon in 2010 quoted weather service meteorologist Brian Korty as saying that “it’s extremely rare to have so many states with snow.”
No, Detroit playing in a Super Bowl is rare. Snow in January is getting downright predictable.
