Much of the United States is experiencing freezing temperatures, including the sunshine state. Florida has not only seen freezing temperatures but actual snow as of Wednesday morning.

Snow started falling on Tallahassee Wednesday around 8 a.m. EST, according to the National Weather Service. The flakes mark the first time significant snow has fallen on the capital city since 1989, the Miami Herald reported.

The snow and freezing temperatures prompted officials to close schools, including Florida State University's Tallahassee campus. The police in Tallahassee urged residents to use "extreme caution" on the roads and to bundle up if they were going to head outside in the snow and cold. The department also posted a video of the snow falling on one of its cruisers.

Icy conditions and an early-morning accident caused a closure of part of I-10 early Wednesday according to police, but later in the day, it was open again after the icy conditions subsided.

The snow was coming down in fairly large flakes and actually sticking in some parts of the state where people couldn't resist taking photos of their pools and palm trees covered in a light blanket of snow.

Meanwhile, in Valdosta, Georgia, the snow was coming down even harder and it was actually accumulating on the lawns and streets. Police even had to close the bridges and overpasses in the city out of concern for drivers.

While the frigid temperatures were expected to persist for a few more days, there was no more precipitation in the forecast for that time, so people in Florida might have to wait another 30 years to see snow in their yards again.
