'Did it rain mud?': High Plains sand leaves residue on Quad-City vehicles
from Quad-City Times
"Dirty rain" that fell on the Quad-Cities left powdery residue on vehicles and is keeping car washes busy. David Cousins, meteorologist with the National Weather Service, Davenport, said airborne sand from White Sands National Monument, New Mexico, and Texas pooled up in a storm system. "The wind was blowing across the High Plains out there, and wafted some sand into the air," Cousins said.
