An eyewitness says:
"It was pretty freakin' real when all the dogs started barking right before it hit, then EVERYTHING shook. We were in the field just outside the barn & the barn continued to shake for a couple minutes afterward. We are about 50-60 miles or so from where it hit."

Rain of Iron and IceOn November 27,1919, a meteorite fell into Lake Michigan near the Michigan shore. "Residents of Battle Creek, Kalamazoo, South Bend, Grand Haven, and other Western Michigan cities fled from their homes in panic, fearing an earthquake. Houses were shaken, the country was illuminated as by a bright sun's rays, so all-enveloping it was impossible to tell from which direction the flare came, the earth trembled for half a moment and then came a deep prolonged rumbling as of a terrific explosion." (p 159)

I should have known when the grand piano soundboard resonated that there would be repercussions. ;)
Dinner was good. Truly good. God bless that 90 year old woman that taught me the technique. And helped me learn my polite spanish.
Not that. I was drowning in drool.
Fires, metorite strikes, and life carries on (well) with locally shot pig and provisions out of the garden.
One must have priorities.
At Armageddon, I'll be the guy in a starched chef's jacket taking over for missing staff and personally passing trays.
You’re off by 10000 MPS.
It’s 186,000 MPS.
One little missing apostrophe, and we can assume all sorts of things, LOL!
It was pulsating? Spinning?
Great pic! Yours?
I never heard about that! Too bad my mom was too young at the time to remember it or I’d ask her about it. (She would turn two in three days.) We are life-long Michiganders. Perhaps it was you who posted the article that suggested that the great Chicago fire, the Peshtigo fire, and the other fires that broke out simultaneously in1871 were I fact caused by meteorite strikes? My husband and I lived in Menominee, MI for four years. It’s just up the road from Peshtigo. That fire is pretty important history to that area.
