The Sky is Falling
More Often Than Ever!

Is it me or are strange things falling out of the sky more often than ever. Just this week in Raleigh a hunk of metal, thought at first to be from an airplane, came crashing into a Cary, NC home. (Click for WRAL Video Report)

Back in February in Miami a similar hunk of steel crashed through through the roof of a house. The CBS/UPN affiliate did a story on it wondering just what it was.

And a few years ago in High Point a so called "Moon Rock" crashed into the domicile of a peaceful North Caroina family. (High Point Moon Rock Saga--- Part 1, Part 2, Part 3)

Of course, the High Point "Rock" came from a near by wood chipping machine. This week's Raleigh event has also been attributed to a grinding machine used to clear trees.

The Miami event, I can't immediately find an explanation for, but I'm sure it
was something similar based on the similarities in all three reports.(Dave, Angie help me out here!)

So is this all just a coincidence? Should there be a recall on tree grinders? Will someone die from a falling hunk of heated, overstressed wood chipper tooth?

Watch out! The sky might be falling again today!

I pitched this exact story. (Didn't get much interest) You see these tub grinders everywhere now, and closer and closer to homes and other populated areas.
