Today’s news brings us coral and snow. Yes, that’s right, snow!
- Could sunscreen be killing coral? Gosh, I hope not. According to the National Geographic News, a study says that it does, however the validity of the study has been questioned.
- Maui’s tallest peak, Haleakala, had a covering of snow this week for the first time in four years. Kuanyin, who lives on Maui, climbed on top of her roof to capture a photo as the clouds gave way to a quick view. The Big Island got snow in the higher elevations, too. Due to snow, Haleakala National Park had limited opening times. I really wouldn’t want to drive that steep winding road in the snow. (Yikes!)
