That’s not snow or rain. That’s dust—Fly Ash—to be precise.
The mud in that area was dug out to level the adjoining areas, to develop housing areas. All fine and well. Now in the rains, those great big ditches would be filled with water. So what do these intelligent people do? They fill up the holes with fly ash. Now in the winds that fly ash flies everywhere, getting in the house, so you can’t walk barefeet without getting your feet black, damaging your electronic items.( That fly ash ain’t too good for the TV you know). Damn Fools. Not to mention the fact that nothing will grow there so that the place will remain barren.
This poor guy’s hut is just hidden by the flying ash.
