Pat Shingleton; "Getting Stoned..."
Weather oddities on this date include to men resting near a stream in the Tatra mountains, bordering Slovakia and Poland in 1927. Stones began falling from the sky, splashing the water and hitting their heads. Attempting to seek shelter in a nearby inn, they were "tossed out" as the inn keeper believed the devil followed them inside. In 1942, a "orange-ish" red light flashed around a barn in New Mexico, prompting residents to touch the light. Suddenly, hundreds of grapefruit-sized rocks hit the same barn, followed by a fireball. In Australia in 1957, stone showers hit a farm and following the incident, farmhand Cyril Penny was pelted by pebbles for five consecutive days. Penny witnessed the same phenomenon two years earlier.
