EDDD 28 – Frost Quakes

19 Comments

I read an article in the paper today about something known as “Frost Quakes,” or “cryoseism.”

Apparently they are caused by the sudden freezing of ground water below the earth’s surface, and they cause the earth to shake and can make very loud noises, much like that of a tree landing on one’s house.

Anyway, it explains why all of the ice from the tree branches is on the ground today. It didn’t melt off as it usually does. It came off as though it was shaken off, still solid.

Have you ever heard of such a phenomena? It’s a first for me!
