NBC News just reported there is measurable snow in 49 of the 50 states. (only Hawaii is snow-free).
While it takes moisture to make snow, it also takes COLD AIR. Cold air that's strong enough to turn the moisture into the white stuff.
And it usually takes a long cold snap in the Midwest/Mid-Atlantic to let it be cold enough to allow snow in the Carolinas/Deep South. Check the dates of Charleston, S.C. snowfall and you'll usually find very cold temperatures for a week or two in places like Charleston, W.Va. and Fishersville.
We have cold air. It came from someplace. Someplace cold.
Hope Sarah and Todd Palin kept enough cold air in Alaska for Todd to race his snow-machine.
