(KHOU Houston)   People in Texas think a mysterious red dust that coated their cars must be the result of a pole shift, a debris trail from an unknown planet, or dust spread by a UFO   (khou.com) divider line 88

It's a plague sent by God for not teaching Creationism® in their schools.

People in Texas are a product of the education system in Texas. That's pretty much all you need to know.

I remember driving west towards Wichita one fine afternoon, and was pelted with mud from above. I knew what was happening straight off. People are idiots.

"This is probably not an alien born phenomenon, but in fact something closer to Earth," Gomez said. "Most likely source is dust that is hurled up in the atmosphere down in Mexico."

Good jerb there Gomer, blame the brown people.

It must be some sort of miracle only Texans are special enough to enjoy.

Not one mention of chemtrails? I am disappoint.

Ignorant rubes.

It's chemtrail residue.

MmmmBacon: Not one mention of chemtrails? I am disappoint.


Everyone know that stuff isn't red!  Unless it is a reaction when a mind control laser passes thru a chemtrail.  That must be where Morgellons came from!

The dust came from Mexico. Illegal dust! Kill it!!

Yeah, I heard in the SAME story on CBS evening news that there had been a dust storm down in Mexico that same day.  Duh.
 
2013-12-27 07:26:54 AM  
They seem to think it's a rare phenomenon. I personally do not have any prior knowledge of what this is, but if it really is just dust from somewhere else, why now? Do they have any idea if something like construction or the like may be a factor, or is this just something strange the weather does occasionally?

Obummer did it!
New Chem trail powder mind control test.
Probably going to make them gay?
 
2013-12-27 07:29:38 AM  
Because Texas sucks so bad it pulls dust in from the south?

Oh, a dust storm. Not a phenomenon I'm very familiar with, but that makes sense now. I'm still a little curious though. Can dust storms be agitated or made worse by people if they leave a bunch of open land around with nothing planted, or does it have to be mostly natural dust?

I still want to know what they're using for grit in the Dallas area ice patrol. It's like crushed recycled concrete. I hope it's not something stupid, like coal ash.
 
2013-12-27 08:17:26 AM  
Does that even crack the top ten of odd things people in Texas think?

As someone who lives in TX I can tell you that the 5 people they got for that story are the only ones who think it's anything other than dust trapped in the rain water.

It's not even close to the 1st time this happened here.
 
2013-12-27 08:41:56 AM  
Who cares what it is. You shouldn't cross against the light.

I'd be curious to know what percentage of people living in Texas today were educated in Texas.  There are a lot of immigrants and I don't mean just immigrants from outside the US.

Ha! What an obscure reference. Good job. What ever happened to that chic? She was hawt.

I didn't read the article, but I think all that dust on my man-truck was blown in from Mexico (I live in Houston, God Bless Texas). The savage drought that's ravaged Texas for the last few years has shifted west and a Pacific jet stream seems to have set in.

Good. I'll take the dust if it means normal rain.
