Yellow snow and sky

The Old Salt left on Friday to go spend the weekend with his brother, and I stayed home to keep up the syringe feedings of our sick kitty. That turned out to be a good thing because I woke up Saturday morning with a killer head cold. Yesterday, I decided to get a head start on this weeks memes by scheduling a few entries to auto post. But, I quickly found that was going to be no easy task. Since we have been snowed in so much the last few weeks I have very few current shots to share and not a single one of those fell into the Mellow Yellow realm.

Then sudden as I started to scan my archives for a suitable yellow shot that old Frank Zappa song from the sixties began to play in my head. You know the one I mean, it goes something like "Watch out where the huskies go, and don't you eat that yellow snow."

Wanting to get that song out of my head, I went to google and keyed in "Yellow Snow" to find the correct lyrics. What I got was a big memory wake up call. Seems there is a lot about colored snow that this old brain had forgotten beside the lyrics to that old Zappa song.

Thanks to Google my brain started stirring like batter in a mixer. First memory to return was all the news coverage back in march of 2009 on all that intense yellow snow that fell in Russia. I found an article on the weather network about cases of snow falling in black, red, blue, brown, orange and even pink. I read about yellow snow in South Korea in 2006 and orange snow in Siberia in 2007. All the result of different forms of pollution.

Then I recalled a science experiment in high school where we created pink snow. But, I can't recall the chemical we used to get the color. But, I digress. This is suppose to be a post for Mellow Yellow and I still had not come up with a suitable photograph by the time the Old Salt retuned home last night.

This morning the Old Salt saved the day. I found the perfect shot when I downloaded the photos from his camera. A glorious yellow sunset he captured from his brothers front yard as he was preparing to leave for the trip home.
