In my post last Thursday I said that rains of strange things, using frogs as an example, being caused by a whirlwind sucking them up sounded a little silly unless the frogs were accompanied by some of their immediate surroundings such as smelly water and pond weed. How can wind be selective enough to only pick up the frogs?
This article was one where I believe the wind caused the unexpected delivery. These ants were dropped on the deck of the boat along with dust. Ants and dust sucked up by the wind sounds perfectly logical. Not sure how impressed I would be about a sudden ant infestation on my yacht though.
