Family In Burlington County, NJ Startled When Ice Crashed Through Their Ceiling This Week
Sure, Jersey gets rough storms from time to time. Anyone who has lived here for a good chunk of their life knows that statement to be true.
South Jersey in particular is not a region that's unfamiliar with damage from hurricanes, tornados, and even an earthquake or two. Ice storms, though? Not so much.
Does the cold impact us Jersey folk? Of course. As a matter of fact, the fall of 2021 felt like it's been one of the colder autumns this region's experienced for a while. Not to mention, we're also accustomed to a few decent amounts of snowfall ever year.
Still, ice falling from the sky in chunks so big that they crash through the roof, ceiling, and right into your kitchen? Now, that's a story you don't hear too often out of the southern part of New Jersey. That's exactly what happened to a family in Marlton in early December of 2021. According to 6abc.com, a woman named Kim Paradise was tending to her baby and stepped away for just a second when suddenly, a decent sized piece of ice fell straight through to her kitchen floor.
When asked about the experience, Paradise said that it sounded like an explosion had happened nearby. She was shocked when she walked back into the room and found a chunk of ice on the ground. Upon looking up, she saw a pretty big hole in her ceiling.
Pictures shared to Twitter since the incident show softball-sized pieces of ice on their roof and in their yard. Check those out HERE.
