It rained Ice :)

A lot of surprising yet nice things have been happening in a row .First it was the the Men in Blue winning the ICC twenty 20 championship and now its raining ice in chennai (not literally, it rained yesterday).I couldn't enjoy it as I was enjoying the weather in confines of my cosy bed and a book. Came to know it rained ice only after seeing the news :( .. Wish the rain gods could give a replay ;) .. I heard it was the size of small pebbles .. Did anybody get to enjoy it??

You can see the video here .. I'm not very sure if this is a video taken in the recent Chennai showers (Thou' I got it after I googled about the ice rain in Chennai).. But, jus' thought I would add this video for those of you missed to see the ice rain like me :)

No way, that is not chennai!!!
it looks like some other place,
as i saw the houses, with no terraces. it was like houses in usa.
But anyway, ice rain in chennai makesme feel cool!!

My mum used to tell me, when she was young, there was once raining ice in malaysia. She and her friends used to collect the ice and bottled it up, obviously it melted. Lolz

So far, I have not experience any ice-kathi mazhai. Hope to see it in future.

@ Ammu

Wish you guys get it soon :) and wish we have it here again, I missed alangati mazhai couple of days back..


Yup, really!! I missed it when it rained ice, but the cold weather was jus' too good :)

@Shanthini akka

lol.. I wish even I could do that.. May be the next time it rains ice I will collect it in a bottle and store in the freezer for my parents to see when they get back from work :)

Wish everyone of us get to enjoy it at some point :)

Yeah, I have experienced ice-rain, especially during my stay & visit to the hills & in some other places also...It looks very beautiful to see the ice-rain but is also damaging to crops...Thanks for sharing the video!

it rained ice in newark nj for most of the summer, when it first happened i thought i was seeing things then i walked out today when it rained again and ice were falling on me, the cars in the street were all stopping i even picked one up and it was ice. This was the same thing that happened in day after tomorrow(movie), it rained ice but it was larger and it killed people
