Seriously! There really is such a thing as Non-Aqueous Rain

Aqueous means water and so since we are talking about non-aqueous rain we are talking about other stuff instead of water falling from the the sky.  For example, there have been reported cases of jellyfish, spiders, toads, birds, fish, even parts of cows falling from the sky.  Sometimes the creatures are frozen in water or torn to pieces when they fall from the sky.  Maybe waterspouts or tornados pick the creatures up, sometimes thousands of feet in the air, then winds carry them away from the area of the storm and then drop them in a place that had no storm.

January 13, 2012 – Lorento, Phillipines – the last known occurrence of Fish falling from the sky.
