Rare ghost apples appear after freezing rain...

Jerry profile image

Hi everyone,

Here's another strange phenomena that appeared in the US mid west in the last few days, freezing rain coated apples. Apples have a lower freezing point than ice. So as they warmed up enough to rot the ice coating remained and the rotten apples fell out leaving ice shaped like apples...seeing is believing and again it shows the wonders of nature...

Here's a link with more photo's and explaining the science:
