    Even with temperatures in the 90s, there are still a few lingering patches of snow in New Hampshire's White Mountains.

    The Mount Washington Observatory spotted several small areas of snow on the summit and on Mount Jefferson on Sunday afternoon.

    At Mount Washington, June 30 marked the end of the 2017-2018 snow season. Intern Simon Wachholz posts that it was a season of ups and downs. Over 80 inches of snow fell in December, but fewer than 30 inches fell in January, and it reached 48 degrees on Feb. 21.

    March was colder and brought in 68.6 inches of snow, followed by 68.9 inches in April. Hardly any snow fell in May, but more came in June, enabling Wachholz to build a snowman.

Some beards had so much beard bacteria the men could get sick, the study says.
