In the U.S., southeastern states are enjoying the sunny Spring weather while the northeast is still dealing with winter storms. Meanwhile, Europe is experimenting orange snow—isn't mother nature phenomenal?

In case you've missed it, there's a bizarre snowstorm going in Europe RN, which includes orange-tinted snow. According to BBC News, this tends to happen "once every five years" in European destinations such as Bulgaria, Ukraine, Romania, Moldova, and Russia.

Although the snow looks cute for an Instagram photo, there's an actual reason it's that color. “There has been a lot of lifted sand or dust originating from North Africa and the Sahara, from sandstorms which have formed in the desert,” expert Steven Keates told Independent. “As the sand gets lifted to the upper levels of the atmosphere, it gets distributed elsewhere."

So, basically, it's the combination of desert sand and snow that gives it that orange shade. Makes sense!
