During the hottest month, on an equatorial paradise island, snow fell. Welcome to the end of days.

On the 'Big Island' of Hawai'i, the white stuff sure did come down July 11 and it made a winter wonderland of the Mauna Kea mountaintop.

Those big, imposing buildings there are the Mauna Kea Observatories, some of the largest astronomical facilities like it in the world. Wonder if they saw the snow coming...

Get a load of some of these pictures and maybe rethink that vacation.

The country experienced some very weird weather over the weekend, especially Colorado.

A group of storm chasers spotted the “Wizard of Oz” IRL Saturday in Eads, and they captured the unusual sight in the video above.

Rain-nado or Torn-bow? You decide.

A photo was also posted to Facebook and Twitter, with some commenters wondering if it was Photoshopped.

Although the video footage proves otherwise.

“Somewhere over the rainbow in Colorado today, there was another rainbow, with a tornado above it!” the Basehunters wrote on Facebook. “An incredible sight to witness in person!”

Sure it’s cool to see, but it’s probably not a great idea to try to find the pot of gold in this case.

Meanwhile in Denver, late season snow on Sunday made for some unpleasant conditions to play baseball, but they did anyway.

The Colorado Rockies tweeted pictures of Coors Field blanketed in snow Sunday ahead of theirafternoon game against the LA Dodgers.

Go home Mother Nature, you’re drunk.

Talk about “monk”-eying around.

A group of Franciscan monks in Jerusalem was caught on video this week having a little fun in the snow.

Storms recently blanketed Israel with some cities receiving their first snowfall since the 1990s.

Watch these guys take a break from their religious duties to frolic in the white powder wearing dark hooded robes.

Meanwhile in Boston… the mayor wants residents to stop jumping out windows.

At a press conference on Tuesday, Mayor Martin J. Walsh issued a warning to anyone participating in a viral video trend where they record themselves diving into piles of snow.

People have been posting the clips online to YouTube and Vine with the hashtag#BostonBlizzardChallenge.

“I’m asking people to stop their nonsense right now. These are adults jumping out windows,” he said. “This isn’t a Loon Mountain, this is the city of Boston.”

Actual Loon Mountain in New Hampshire also got wind of the Mayor’s comments, and they say they don’t want any of these shenanigans either. They spoke with one of the jumpers about it in a new video.

“This could be the biggest snowstorm in the history of this city,” said New York Mayor Bill de Blasioat a press conference on Sunday about Winter Storm Juno, or what is now being collectively referred to online as “Snowmageddon 2015.”

The governors of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut have all declared state of emergencies as more than 2 feet of snow is expected to dump in the area.

While you hunker down and get started on that first loaf, check out some of the best reactions to the storm so far on Twitter.

What’s black and white and rolls down a hill?

Bao Bao the baby panda enjoying her first snow day at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo in Washington, D.C.

While Tuesday’s snow may have ruined your day, the sixteen month-old cub seemed to really enjoy it. The little ball of fur tumbled around in the white stuff and wrestled her mother Mei Xiang.

And she wasn’t the only one amused by the storm. Here are some lion cubs tackling each other and a gray seal shoving its nose into the snow.
