SPRINGFIELD, Mass. - A rare floating island in a pond here broke free during last weekend's storm and was beached in nearby backyard.

The 10,000 square-foot land mass had been floating in Island Pond, but last week's heavy rains shifted the island "over my fence, crushing it, and onto my property," said Andrew Renna.

"It remains impaled on the fence, roots out of the water," he said.

It looks like a regular island but its floating like an iceberg. Some are natural but mostly they are manmade or the byproduct of earthmoving projects around bodies of water.

Kind of cool though.



Is my Pan Am ticket to the moon still good?
