When the snow turned red

QUESTION: What was that reddish dust coating on cars, trash cans and mailboxes and anything left outside recently?
- Sandy Lamb

ANSWER: When it snowed on Feb. 17 there had been a sandstorm that day in the San Luis Valley and dust storms in Arizona that brought red and orange dust. All that debris got caught up in the “Southwest flow” that came through, leaving behind a muddy mess when the white stuff melted, according to KOAA meteorologist Mike Daniels.
