    Pink Snow in Buffalo?

    Odd news, 4th Floor!

    Some snow in a Buffalo neighborhood turned a deep shade of pink after a cloud of powder was released during demolition of a business that once made food coloring.

    As surprised parents and pet owners wondered whether to ban outdoor play, state health and environmental officials collected samples.

    A demolition contractor says a pipe that contained about five pounds of residual red dye No. 40 ruptured at a building being torn down near the former Buffalo Color plant Thursday afternoon. John Yensan of Ontario Specialty Contracting says powder was carried by the wind across homes, cars and streets.

    red 40, isn't that the one made from petroleum or coal/tar?
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    Red 40? I thought that was a play designed by pcad during his youth football days.

    It's a plot by Holly to lure Pcad out of hiding so she can wrassle him for the title of football knowledge queen.
