A neighborhood near the Star of the West Milling Co., Frankenmuth, MI, was coated in white last week, but the substance wasn't snow.

ABC 12 reports the company released a statement acknowledging it sprayed wheat flour during the early morning hours of Jan. 31.

The mess left several homes east and north of the mill coated in flour. Rain and damp weather caused the flour to congeal in clumps stuck to homes, sidewalks, streets and driveways.

The mill said extremely cold weather last Wednesday and Thursday caused a pipe to separate, which sprayed the flour.
