Many California residents were surprised when a hail storm hit the southern part of the state this week. But one Hollywood icon was particularly shocked - and confused. Kim Kardashian took to Instagram to share her excitement over the "snow" falling on her home.

The reality TV star shared a few videos on Instagram of the hail all over her Los Angeles property and mistakenly called it "snow." "It's snowing, and I'm in Calabasas," Kim said in a video, giving a close-up of the hail. "I don't know if you can see that, but this is absolutely insane."

"This is really crazy. How is this happening?" Kardashian asked in another clip as she walked towards her home's basketball court. "This is insane! My basketball court is white with snow. This is insane! You guys, my basketball court is black you guys, this is insane." She then grabbed a handful of hail and added, "This is a trip, like, it's snowing in Calabasas."

Kim even corrected her friend and supermodel Winnie Harlow after Harlow called the frozen rain by its proper name and tagged Kardashian. "I said it's snowing! If you're from California it's called SNOW not hail LOL," the mom-of-four wrote along with a repost of Winnie's Insta Story. But the beauty mogul got the message after being inundated with DMs and tweets about the matter.

"OK OK I get the message!!! It is HAIL!!! Not SNOW!" Kardashian said. "I'm not a meteorologist people!!!! Never claimed to be! I know I got 30 jobs but a meteorologist ain't one! If it's hailing in Calabasa in March I call it snow!!! OKKKKURRRRR." Kim then got in on the fun, reposting some of the hilarious social media responses to her mistake.

Unsurprisingly, the SKIMS founder embraced the funny mix-up like a champ. Kim uploaded some of her favorite tweets about the situation, writing comments and laughter emojis on many of them. One fan of the starlet tweeted, "If Kim says it's snowing in Calabasas, it's snowing." Bible - we couldn't agree more.
