I know it sounds like the name for a new brand of cereal but it seems to be the latest in our two week northern weather marathon here! A series of loud bangs that shook our homes, woke us up all over the city again in the early morning hours – we all arose to check our roofs convinced a tree had just fallen through…but no it was a bunch of cryoseisms – frost quakes!! Well it was -32c last night – apparently colder than Mars.
First freezing rain, then an ice storm and now a frost quake – what’s next? A ‘frostnado’!
We here in Canada tend to have a pre occupation with weather in the winter so if you want to know more have a look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cryoseism
