Purple Snow in Russia

On Tuesday, folks in the Stavropol Region in Southern Russia found their countryside covered with purple-tinged snow!
Having analysed the samples, climatologists ruled that the snow is perfectly safe. However, eating purple snow is still not recommended as scientists say it is full of dust from Africa.

A massive dust cyclone rose to upper atmosphere layers and then mixed with regular snow clouds in Russia's South.

This is not the first time the country has seen such a snow. Link -via Fortean Times

One of my conditions about snow is that it should be edible. Anyway that is what I tell all sales people who try to sell me artificial snow at Harrods.
Pink snow is just lovely !

We had something like this happen last year in Colorado. The snow pack and glaciers were covered in dust and they melted because darker colors attract heat.
