Mauna Kea, Hawaii
VIDEO by David Corrigan
The strong winds and soaking rains that swept through the Big Island Sunday evening also deposited some snow on Mauna Kea.
The Big Island summits were under a high wind advisory Sunday evening, but the storm that blew through the island, creating a flood advisory that lasted until 2 am, had dissipated into blue skies by Monday morning.
The Mauna Kea access road was closed early this morning due to snow on the roads, but reopened at 11 a.m. with about a half-inch of snow above the 13,000 foot level.
In this video, a group of Hilo residents ascend to the summit to try to collect some of the snow before it melts away.
