ice age

My truck had rested for several days, so I was surprised to open the door and see a big crack in the middle of the windshield. Naturally, my first thought was:

Does Nationwide cover megacryometeor damage?

Stories are told from the days of old amongst these hills - and some of those stories describe massive chunks of ice falling from the sky. More on that later this week.

A good excuse to mention a nice comment in response to "ice balls and sun dogs", which added this:

The scientific study of megacryometeors started on January 2000. There are several scientific articles on the subject. See for instance [The Journal of Atmospheric Chemistry]

Further information about these unusual ice falls can be found here:
