Yellow-orange snow falling in Russia
AFP, via Sydney Morning Herald | 2 Feb 2007 | Staff

Posted on 02/01/2007 6:00:11 PM PST by Kitten Festival

Russia's emergency situations ministry says it is dispatching experts to a Siberian province to find out why yellow and orange snow has been falling in several villages, the ITAR-TASS news agency has reported.

"A chemical test unit will be sent to Omsk ... it's main task will be to investigate pollution in the region and establish the degree of danger represented by the anomalous snow fall," the agency quoted an unnamed official from the ministry as saying.

Snow ranging in colour from light yellow to orange and carrying a distinctive "musty"

Be interesting to see if the Russkies will tell what airborne pollutant is causing this. My guess is a toluene derivative.

Yellow snow falling … don’t we have some astronauts hovering in orbit, astronauts that just spent many hours working in space without a bathroom break?

Let's see...

It's 1978 and I could...

A) Get serious about graduate school, buckle down and apply myself...

B) Devote more time to Frank Zappa and abusing psychogenics....

What to do, what to do...

It sounds so pretty, It would be nice if it was icy and in all different flavors, you could scoop it up and eat ICEES all day.

Kind of a nuclear Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory.

It's very sad when the snow carries a distinctive musty.

The last time I heard the word 'musty' used it was describing horny male elephants on a nature program.

I think elephants are described as musky, attics and basements are musty.

I think AL Gore should go there immediately. He should throw himself into a field of yellow snow, make snow angels and write a book about his experience.

I thought elephants were described as tusky.

Unless they've been stored in the basement and so can be described as musty, or tusky-musty.

I just checked their weather. With SW winds, whatever is causing it could be coming from Kazakhstan. Probably isn't good. {Duh!}

Certainly he must.

I cite precedent: Please note the rapper P-Diddy.

Upon exiting the men's room, the question was posed: Did he pee?

Well, there you go.

I understand that Kazakhstan is supposed to have some of the most polluted areas on Earth.
