You’re familiar with the saying, ‘Don’t eat yellow snow’, but what about if the snow is orange? In parts of Russia, Bulgaria, Romania, and northern Greece, they have orange snow. How does that happen? The answer is the Sahara Desert. Every 5 years or so particles of sand get blown across the Mediterranean Sea and lifted into the atmosphere. Eventually the clouds fill-up and precipitation falls. In Russia, Bulgaria, Romania, and Greece they get orange snow. I don’t think they eat that colour either.
