I’ve seen pink snow

Feather-light pink flakes swirled in front of my windshield. I considered the situation carefully: the DC metro region has had its share of snow and hail in the last couple of weeks. More bad weather is forecast from Wednesday but none of the weather reports has mentioned pink precipitation.  On the hard shoulder, pink eddies formed into Disney drifts. In front of me, falling fairy flakes lifted and tumbled in the chill wind. As it turned out, this wasn’t a heavenly stunt for Valentine’s week, but a truck leaking polystyrene nuggets from under a badly secured tarp.  An environmental crime I am sure, but a rather jolly start to the morning on the Beltway.
