(Newser) – Snow is on the ground in every state except one after winter storms in the South, Plains, and the Midwest left America so snowy that a snowball could practically be rolled from coast to coast. Even Hawaii has winter snow on the summits of volcanoes, leaving Florida as the only snow-free state, CNN reports. Snow is on the ground in 69.4% of the lower 48, and merging storms are set to dump another couple of feet of snow on the Northeast.
