Today in Heritage History, 1922, snow falls on Mauna Loa, in Hawaii. After several reported incidents of frost bite (many of which on odd body parts), the unexpected weather ironically led to a major cultural shift for Hawaiians, helping them to understand that undergarments can be comfortably worn under their grass skirts. Just one odd weather day in history along with selective ill-fate, led to thousands of island natives who would all answer in local bars to the nicknames “Stumpy” the Mauna Loan, (drinking) with his ex-hula dancing partner “Rosy-Cooch”.
