The Sky Is Falling In Iowa!

On a cloud free day in Dubuque, Iowa, large chunks of ice, one of them reportedly about 50 pounds, fell from the sky.

David Travis, a professor of geography and geology and an associate dean at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, has studied the phenomenon of large chunks of ice falling from a clear sky. He said it’s possible the ice could have been a megacryometeor — “similar to a hailstone, but without the thunderstorm.”

  1. Fortunately, unlike other such cases, these chunks don’t appear to be seepage from an airliner’s waste holding tanks, as the color of that ice is blue. Still…it kind of looks like peas and carrots are mixed in there, somehow.
