What caused these rare 'ghost apples' to form?
Friday, February 8, 2019, 12:48 PM - The freezing rain that hit parts of Canada this week has caused its share of headaches -- from closures, to cancellations, to numerous car crashes.
But every time Mother Nature disrupts the lives of millions, she'll drop a small gift here and there.
On Wednesday, Andrew Sietsema posted photos of an ice formation he saw dangling from an apple tree in Michigan's Kent County.
He called them 'ghost apples'.
Sietsema told local news the freezing rain coated the tree and the rotting apples clinging to it, creating a solid shell.
When he shook the tree, some of the rotted apples tumbled to the ground, leaving the encasing behind.
His post has gone viral on Facebook, racking up almost 650 'likes' at the time of this writing.
