Mystery Chunks of Ice Pelt Iowa City.

Large pieces of ice fall from the sky in an Iowa neighborhood, damaging trees and one home. Authorities say the ice could simply be the work of Mother Nature -- or it could have fallen from a plane.

I'd like to know which "authorities" say that chunks of ice that size could fall simply as a result of weather.

First I'm giving you a rep point for this one, then I'm selling a hundred sixty acres of oceanfront property in Arizona! You have been pre-approved. Send cash immediately.
