I've heard of cats and dogs, and even men, but apples!?

Just be grateful you weren't out driving around in Coventry, UK a couple of days ago. Because it started to rain apples from the sky!

Stunned motorists were forced to brake sharply to avoid the falling fruit, believed to be swept up by a vortex caused by freak weather conditions in Coventry.

An avalanche of more than 100 apples rained down over a main road in Keresley, Coventry on Monday night.

Some people posited an otherworldly explanation.

Keresley parish councillor Sandra Camwell said a freak black-out happened on the same road last year.

She said: "Strange things do happen in this part of the world. I think it's highly likely that apples did fall from the sky.

"We're in an area with a spooky history, where there have been witches for centuries, after all."

The Met Office dismissed supernatural explanations and instead blamed a small tornado or other vortex. Of course, the Met Office are the same boys that brought us anthropogenic carbon based global warming...
