Earlier this year on March 9, 2010 it snowed in the Southern Russian region of Stavropol. Normally I would not write an article about snow in Russia, but the snow that fell on that day, was not the kind of snow one envisions when dreaming of a white Christmas. No, the snow that fell to the ground that morning was actually purple instead of white. That's right purple snow. Now I am pretty sure most of you have heard of the song "Purple Rain" by the artist formerly known as Prince, but have any of you ever seen purple colored rain? I only ask, because if it had not been so cold that day in March, then maybe I would be writing an article about purple rain instead of purple snow
So then, what caused this phenomenon to happen you may wonder? Well after having analyzed the samples, climatologists determined that a massive dust cyclone in Africa rose to the upper atmospheric layers and eventually traveled into Southern Russian air space. Once over Russia, the red dye in the wind blown sand mixed with the precipitation in the clouds and the normally white snow fell with a purplish hue.
After watching this video myself, I decided to do some investigation to see how rare this phenomenon is, and what I found was fascinating. The phenomenon is not as rare as I thought it would be. Fact is, I found several reports of colored snow and rain being reported in various different areas of our planet. The oldest report on record took is almost a hundred yeas old. In 1912 black snow fell on parts of Alaska and Western Canada. In 2006 yellow snow blanketed the capital of South Korea, and just a few years ago it happened twice in Russia. Counting the purple snow in the video below, that makes it three times in four years that colored snow fell somewhere in Russia. I ran across over a dozen such occurrences mentioned in various venues, and only God knows how many have never been reported
I'll begin with the black snow that landed on parts of Alaska and Canada in 1912 after a volcano near Mount Katmai, called Novarupta, erupted. The volcano spewed seven cubic miles of blistering rock and ash into the upper atmosphere where it mixed with snow clouds over parts of Alaska and Canada. When it eventually snowed, the snow was black
In 2006 the South Koreans were treated to a rare weather phenomenon that caused yellow snow to fall on their capital city Seoul. After a massive dust storm blew through China's Gobi Desert, it carried yellow sand into the high atmosphere over the Korean Peninsula. When the yellow sand mixed with the precipitation, it was just a matter of time before the temperatures would be just cold enough for it to dust South Korea with yellow snow. Now this was not just a few spots of yellow snow like the kind our parents told us not to eat when we were younger either. The yellow snow covered more than just the city, it also dusted the surrounding countryside.
In Russia, the first time it was powdered with some snow of a different color, was in Western SiberiaThe incident that set things in place for the occurrence was a cyclone that began to form in the southeastern Caspian Sea area. After the cyclone winds moved inland they traveled over the territories of Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, and the Russian Volga and Ural regions. The climatologists determined that the cyclone carried mineral deposits from the region that contained a natural yellow.......
This is kinda weird, but very explainable if you look at the logical science behind it. Unfortunately, there are too many who will never look at the facts, instead they will believe the lies of the left and come away from listening to the MSM tell them it's all caused by global warming.
Purple Snow, isn’t that the sequel to Purple Rain?
Have you heard about the purple snow that dusted the countryside of Russia? Well if not you should check out this video and an article that accompanies it. I also have a video with the same article that shows the red rain that landed in India.....
No mention of purple snow in Mark 13, Matthew 24, or Luke 21...
Watch out where the huskies go, and don’t you eat that yellow snow.
The first line I thought of when I saw this thread - Zappa was a genius!
Actually, not this time of year either ~ darned that runaway greenhouse effect!
—part of Colorado (Leadville area) had a coating of pinkish-red snow in the mid or late sixties’ (19 not 18) as a result of desert dust—it fell on Valentines’ Day——
I was drenched in miserable black rain for days during Desert Storm.
Can you still get snow cones?
I haven’t had one since I was a kid.
I’m not sure where I’d even go if I wanted one.
Frederick Cook’s narrative of his expedition to the North Pole included a description of the ‘purple snows’, something that was thought preposterous at the time but since confirmed as a phenomenon at extremely high latitudes. It probably has something to do with the extreme angle of the sun at certain times of the day.
We can get muddy rain during the early Spring here in Texas.
years ago I was caught in a combination sand storm/rain storm in southern Nevada.Mud was falling on my windshield...I kid you not.This New England boy had never seen anything like it...and haven't since,either.
Purple Snow sounds like a team nickname that some college would adopt after being forced to drop Indians or Fighting Sioux or something
Anyone who says God doesn’t have a sense of humor ain’t paying attention. Red snow on Valentine’s Day!
“In 2006 yellow snow blanketed the capital of South Korea,”
Then they put dog on the menu, and the problem was greatly reduced.
