Default Now the South is sending it's DUST up here.

Today we had "red rain" I thought it was rust and could not figure it out. My truck was clean this morning, it rained and then my truck was covered in rust colored dust. Even though it was raining the car wash was packed, I went to a power wash and waited for 4 cars. The DEQ says it was from a dust storm in the South. Leave you residents down there, your Blue Hairs and your DUST I will sent each of you a bill for a penny to cover the $1 I spent at the wash

The DEQ said it was non acidic but nothing about toxic I was just out there cleaning it in the Garage. I couldn't get my truck this dirty unless I was in a mud run...behind another truck
