Re: Iceball Fall in 1849?

In a message dated 97-09-22 12:16:13 EDT, you write:

 I've heard of a report of an iceball falling in 1849 in the Isle of Skye,
 which is an island off the coast of Scotland.  Does anyone have  any
 additional details on this fall?  Usually, iceballs falling from the sky
 are usually regarded as either hailstones, or a sewer dump from an airplane.
 However, in this case, the iceball was of considerable size (size of
 a boulder?), and there were obviously no airplanes around in 1849.
