I'm from that area originally, so I'm interested.
I'll check back in later if I find anything, or to see if any of you locate some info..


Me too. I'll see if it's still happening tomorrow.

Thanks.

The "Alberto" conclusion is very strong possibility, but with the way that this world is working lately, I mean with the earthquakes, volcanos, and other fragile earth topics, anything is possible, "I guess?'


How long did it last before the sun went down? Has anyone else inquired to you about this wierd occurrance?

*Alberto makes since though*

Essentially, it was a 9 hour event with varying intensity.

Greetings...

Here is a website I visit often:
EAST USA movie on color map

Could be something swept up from the south from Alberto. I've read about bizzare things falling from the sky during storms. Actually, here's an article from a thread I created:
Sky Fall

DearWife:

I'm beginning to firmly believe the recent fires in Florida and Alberto's remnants are the explanation for the ash fall in DC.


I think it strange that it was never picked up in the local media, though...

Where did this happen Loam? I mean what part of the city. I'm in NW and didn't see anything. I'm in the downtown/Dupont area. This is interesting.

Or it could be the Bush administration burning its paper trail. Anyone notice a big bonfire around any government buildings.

I had the same thought...
We have lots of wind storms and tornadoes in the mid states, and dust is usually quelled by water from rainstorms...

I would think that the storm did the same there...

I like the answer of: Lots of document burning going on in the old town tonight.
incenerators are blasting all over town...

I am also very surprised that no "terror" alerts have been issued since it is a rare unusual event.

You would think media would be all over this, as they are on all the unusual dust fall stories...

This brings to mind, last week i went with my daughter in law to do errands, and it was pouring. In the midst of it all, we saw very large grey flakes come down. This was in the Hyannis area. We both looked at each other and couldnt figure out what "it" was. It was warm.

Or maybe they were burning the bodies from the Rayburn shootout!!


I couldn't find anything eith except Indonesia's Mt Merapi volcano spewed gas, and ash...I would think that would be too far away to affect DC.

Yeah, the Media is acting pretty wacky lately, they still haven't reported all the EQ's in Alaska. When I went to bed last night, there were over 90 eq's. I would thing that should at least get a mention??? Everytime St. Helens burps it's National news

Meanwhile, over the other side of the Atlantic it is cloudy here and I have been coughing a lot. Not ash though.

On topic, thats very strange, has this ever occoured anywhere else in the whole of history?? Weird ash falling out of midair!

I live and work in NW D.C. and I didn't notice anything like you are describing. A previous posted indicated that it may be dust from a nearby construction site. It very well could be this. A building near the one I live in is being renovated and I have noticed a fine layer of dust on my car, which is parked a few blocks away.

Somebody's been smoking up all that G-13 weed and then they had to dispose of the ash some way.

It could very well be from Florida. I am in Missouri, and we had that same thing happen when Yellowstone had that big fire.

Tampa, Florida here. Loam I did notice that happen Tuesday afternoon over here. I was meeting my friend up at his crib, and as we were walking to the door I saw stuff very much like that you described flying around. I saw it again when I went to Wendy's to eat an hour later. Not that it stopped and happened again, it was constant, but so small it was mostly unnoticeable unless your mind was pretty blank at the moment. I only saw it Tuesday though. There was a tornado that touched down farther north of my location close to where there were fires raging when Alberto made landfall. It was only alerted on those little weather warning on tv when your watching a show around 11:00pm. Perhaps it could have carried a certain amount of ash into the atmosphere maybe and the storm continued to carry it north to your area?

Thats just my theory. But I did see it Tuesday afternoon. Its really not something you could take a picture of. I mean you lose sight of whatever your watching after a few seconds and its so small I could not even distinguish any of it on the ground from the common rubbish.

Lots of fires west of you. The weather was talking about the east having hot days as this advanced to the east. Could be from these fires as well. The ash I mean.

OK...

Happy to report NO ash flakes today... Looked long and hard for them, but none to be found....

Now that the remnants of Alberto have passed, so has the unusual event.

Thanks for all the great replies.


Oh, and, ummm...I loved the paper burning comments!
Too funny!
