The freezing rain in Michigan earlier this week created an unusual icy phenomenon called "ghost apples."

The freezing rain coated rotting apples, creating a solid icy shell around them.

When the trees were pruned, the apples would shake, causing many of them to fall off, ice and all.

With a few of them, the mush slipped out of the bottom of the ice casing, leading to a "ghost apple."
