Meteor!

A meteor weighing ~10 tons and traveling at supersonic speed (54,000 kph or 33,000 mph) streaked over the Russian Ural Mtns. earlier today at 9:20 am local time (0320 GMT). About 400 injuries are reported, mostly due to broken glass and damage to a local factory.

A meteoride is a small piece of space debris – usually part of comets or asteroids – that is on a collision course with the Earth. When meteoroids enter the Earth's atmosphere they are called meteors. Most meteors burn up in the atmosphere, but if they survive the frictional heating and strike the surface of the Earth they are called meteorites. Currently, there is no technology to intercept such fast moving objects from crashing on earth.

OK everyone, it's really happening.  We have a Google+, so there's no turning back now.  Add us to your circles to keep up on our new farm in Jersey.
Alright Monmouth county, come 'n get it!  Spinach, radishes, turnips, kale, swiss chard, herbs, salad greens, lettuce heads, cucumbers, summer squash, peppers, eggplants, tomatoes, potatoes.  Who needs Whole Foods, Sickles, or Dearborn Market when you've got farmers for neighbors?
