Massive Chemical Spill = Quirky Water Cooler Chat

January 15, 2010

Leave it to the Buffalo News.

Residents of a several-block area of the Seneca-Babcock neighborhood started noticing something odd appearing on their streets, and around their homes, early Thursday afternoon:

Pink-streaked snow.

Pink champagne it wasn’t, but the mystery grew.

What was it, and where did it come from?

“It’s just weird. You’ve got pink snow,” said Phyllis Wesley from her Orlando Street home.

“I’ve never seen anything like it,” said mail carrier Mark Reed before continuing his rounds on Peabody Street. “It’s very colorful.”

The state health department said there was no immediate risk that they were aware of.

Still.
