Friday afternoon we experienced a very strange red dust storm blown in from southwestern Colorado and southeastern Utah giving the sky colors ranging from brown to orange to red. This is the third dust storm we've had before a snowstorm, but this one was definitely the biggest.During the dust storm was the KOTO Radio Annual Pink Flamingo End of Season Street Dance and Costume Party complete with live music.
The dogs around the block party didn't seem to mind the dust too much.
The San Miguel County Courthouse looked eerie.
The dust is very bad for the snowpack. You can see here the reddish dirt covering the ski trails under the gondola.
Of course Saturday morning we woke up to a fresh blanket of snow!
