Rick Santorum has won the Alabama Republican primary.

Forty-seven of Alabama’s fifty delegates are tied to the primary, and the state will award those delegates proportionally.

Mr. Santorum, coming off a win in Kansas on Saturday, got a boost in the battle to be the alternative to Mitt Romney by beating Newt Gingrich on his home turf.

Mississippi is also holding a primary today, and Hawaii and American Samoa are holding caucuses.

Snow in 49 States This Week

This week, CNN reported that there was snow on the ground in 49 of the 50 states.

The only state where it didn’t snow this week was Florida.

Yes, that means that even Hawai’i got some snow. In fact, snow in Hawai’i isn’t rare; it snows all winter in places like Mauna Loa.

Snow covering this much of the country is very unusual, though it is hard to say the last time it happened, since records of this sort are not kept.
