Purple Snow In Russia

I ran across this story earlier in the week, but I was too busy preparing to head out of town for work to post it here.

Now that I’m home, I present a story for all you Weather Channel fans out there.

In the spectrum of colorful meteorological mayhem, it’s not Prince’s “Purple Rain“, but purple snow that fell upon Russia. The lavender powder was impacted by dust from Africa rising into the atmosphere and mingling with the snow clouds.

Weird stuff indeed, but it makes for one lovely blanket.

Here’s another weird weather anomaly, an icicle that looks like Jack Frost.
