Interestingly enough, the theory of Evolution, and the theory of Relativity are still under the same name as they were before I was born. But now its “Climate Change” because its DAMN cold!
Bizarre cold-weather phenomena called frost quakes — which generate shaking and ear-splitting sounds likened to exploding bombs — have blasted towns across the Northeast and upper Midwest during this extraordinarily frigid winter.
Thanks to social media reports, researchers have been able to study frost quake reports submitted from Minnesota, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri and Canada and talk to those who felt and heard the unsettling booms and shakes.
“Experiencing them is not only incredibly unnerving, but due to snow cover it’s unknown if these loud, house-shaking booms have done any unseen damage,” said Ashley King, of Toronto, who believe she first felt one on Jan. 6.
I live on a lake, and I’m amazed I haven’t felt any of these during the massive cold snaps. I guess my lake is too small!
Wasn’t that long when they told us “Ice” was something you’d only find in your grocer’s freezer section!
