    The most recent of the many historical reports of anomalous falls from the skies:

    Core blimey - it's raining APPLES! Drivers stunned by mysterious downpour of fruit (Daily Mail)

    :waitasec: Apple trees are harvested and dormant by now-- I think they came from a barge or train car, or open style semi trailer? How bizarre, can you imagine? :thud:

    Bizarre indeed, but actually a not-completely-uncommon Fortean occurrence. Reports stretch back over the centuries. I don't think I've ever read of one fully explained, i.e., "Yes, I had those same green apples in an open bin outside my barn and they disappeared that night with the rain and winds," though.

    All I can add is that I think it's a bad sign that I don't live too far from Coventry and it took Websleuths to enlighten me. ;)

    Ach, who needs Auntie Beeb when we've got Woofie? :)
