Put this one in the weird weather file.
John Connors returned to his Chicago home last week to find his cat Oscar terrified and a collection of bowling ball-sized ice chunks that had crashed through his roof.
ABC 7 reports:
"If I had been here, I would have been killed," Connors said.
His neighbor Doris Patiz was home at the time.
"I hear this terrible blast, I thought it was a gas explosion," Patiz said.
"I walked in and thought a bomb had exploded," Connors said. "I looked up and I could see the sky and planes."
Connors says the ice chunks crashed through the roof with such force, they shattered the ceiling beams - barely missing his cat. Connors was so shocked when he saw the damage, he didn't notice the frigid, artic wind whipping through the gaping hole in his ceiling.
"My chair was soaked with ice, just like, encrusted with ice and the rugs were soaked from the ice that had melted," Connors said.
One chunk was found in his bedroom, about 20 feet away from his living room.
Thankfully, the ice chunks missed Connor's glass curio cabinet, which houses a certain famous phallic plaster cast by noted artist Cynthia Plaster Caster. The prized item was also humouroulsy (and unknowingly) featured prominently in the background of a local news interview.
See for yourself, AFTER THE JUMP...
