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.

ELIZABETH COHEN: You’re one of those nerds, is that it?

ZAHN: … I try to get through six glasses right here during the “American Morning” show. So I’ve been living in a state of flotation for many years here, and now you say I didn’t need to do this. What’s going on?

COHEN: Well, actually, before I tell you that, Paula, I have to ask you, do you sweat a lot during the show?

ZAHN: Never…

COHEN: Never, then you don’t need all that much water.

ZAHN: … because they keep the air conditioning here at like 60 degrees to make sure everybody’s alert and thinking well.

COHEN: Right, exactly.

Where do you get your water?
