Not been here for some time. I went to the movie last night and it brought this thread back to mind. The movie was "Dark Skies" A very good movie if you like scary one . It had "The Grays" from UFO'S visitations, dead falling birds, secret government experiments. I think some movie producer has taken all the strange going on's and made them into a very scary movie. See the trailer. Type in "Dark Skies"Good afternoon folks. Hubby brought something interesting to my attention today. Last night we had a period of sleet, which left a heavy coating of ice pellets on our porch storage box. When the ice particles on the lid melted, it left behind a small granule of dark gravel-like substance, which was at the core of each ice crystal. It is obvious that the sleet washed out some foreign substance high up in the atmosphere, and deposited it when the sleet pellet fell to earth. Never saw anything like that before. When we were kids, we used to eat snow and accumulated ice on the ground. It's not safe anymore, and who knows what the precipitation is washing down from the atmosphere.
Wish you could have that strange substance analyzed to see what it was. Do you have some of it yet?
