On Sunday a big chunk of clear ice streaked across the sky and crash landed in an urban field, leaving behind a two foot wide crater. I'll have to ask my friends who live a few blocks from the impact site if they saw it.
Hmm, been a while since I've heard reports of "cigar ice." I've seen pictures of some pretty impressive chunks that fell off the wings of planes back in the '60's. I wonder if the big ones form on wings of slower-moving prop airplanes, rather than on jets?
