didn't they test it and decide it had a high iron content and the yellow was rust? 
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

huh, i remember...some 6 years ago, we had this orangely-brown snow. oh...and 3 years ago again. it's not the snow that's fascinating, it's the day when it falls, a red day. but of course the snow was red from sand from africa 8-)

Very interesting.  I can't say we ever get snow or oddly colored percipitation here but, there's always red tide (twice in the last 2 years) and, it certainly produces a prounounced, foul odor.
