Pollen cloud causes stir in Moscow

What would you do, if you woke to the sight of a large green cloud drifting towards you from the direction of Chernobyl? If you said panic, we, and thousands of Russians, are with you. This morning, just such a cloud appeared over Moscow, leading to rumors of everything from industrial accidents to alien invasions. Fortunately, the government confirmed the pollen-filled cloud’s safety, and urged residents to remain calm. When asked about the panic, one Russian official simply replied, “Many residents forgot all about natural phenomena.” (photos via @KristyaMasyasha/Gizmodo/ABC) source

Calm before the storm: Via our friends at AltDaily comes a video from Norfolk resident and AltDaily writer Keegan Morrison, who put a camera outside of his condo, then threw it on a timelapse. Look at those results. Yes, the storm is scary, but beauty comes from chaos sometimes. (Editor’s note: I briefly helped with the Norfolk-based AltDaily in its embryonic stage. — Ernie @ SFB)
