Snow in all 51 states?

You've probably seen news reports that 49 states had snow on the ground in recent days--with Hawaii as the lone holdout. But Hawaii actually DID have snow... and it's not all that uncommon on the islands. (See the satellite image above.) Those volcanoes go up pretty high, and some intrepid goofballs actually ski in Hawaii (which makes about as much sense as mountain climbing in Iowa.) So if 50 states can have snow simultaneously, what about 51? That is, if Puerto Rico ever becomes a state, could they join the snow club? Most meterologists would say no... unless you count the bizarre event documented in this old newsreel.
