It was so cold this week in a Michigan Orchard that 'Ghost Apples' were seen.

Now, you've probably never heard of 'Ghost Apples', because you know... what on Earth are 'Ghost Apples'?

Well to answer that question we have to look at what happened...

Freezing rain caused an icy apple-shaped coating to form around rotting apples.

The rotting apples turned to mush since they have a lower freezing point than water, leaving the icy 'Ghost Apples' still hanging from the trees.
