After the giant fireball explosion of 2013, residents of Chelyabinsk are facing blue snow!
Yes! The city streets are covered by a strange bluish snow. What is this again?
As the sun rose today, everyone noticed the blue rooftops, blue parking lots…we started panicking a bit. The fallout was spotted in an industrial zone on the outskirts of the city.
According to witnesses, the strange snow smelt somewhat like iron, but was not giving the locals much trouble and even brightened up the area’s gloomy surroundings.
Correspondent with local news portal Telefact, Alexandra Artamonova, said she could “feel a sweet taste in the mouth” while merely standing near a pile of blue snow. She added that people have been complaining of a sore throat after passing near the contaminated area.
Nevertheless, later on Thursday LifeNews claimed to have solved the mystery saying that the blue snow should not cause any concern. It turned out to be that a local factory making dye for Easter eggs had a minor “spill”. The Viteks Company assured that the colorant does not pose any health risks.
LOL! They are already preparing for Easter in Siberia!
