Dust was from Mexican quake

Dear Editor:

I know most of our red dust comes from Utah, but this most recent and worst-in-a-long-time episode, is from the earthquake in Mexico … it threw up a ton of dust that got directly into the jet stream and came directly to Colorado … according to Denver news sources.
