LEVITTOWN, Pennsylvania (The Adobo Chronicles) – Earlier this week, The Adobo Chronicles reported that it was raining spiders in Goulburn, Australia. It seems the Aussies had it much better than residents of Pennsylvania, U.S.A.

A Levittown family says their daughter’s Sweet 16 birthday party was ruined when a passing airplane dropped human waste on the celebration Sunday evening.

Joe Cambray, the birthday girl’s stepfather, said he was playing some horseshoes in the backyard when out of nowhere, something nasty rained down on the gathering, according to Fox 29 Philadelphia. Thankfully, a canopy erected for the party shielded most of the guests.

“Out of nowhere from the sky comes a bunch of feces, lands hard on the canopy,” Cambray told the station.

“We’d just gotten done with the cake, thank God,” Cambray’s sister, Kristie Rogy, said. “Because within two minutes something fell from the sky. It was brown. It was everywhere. It got on everything… It was gross!”

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is now investigating the incident and is ready to file charges against the aircraft responsible for being a party pooper.

IN AUSTRALIA, IT’S RAINING SPIDERS!

spidersGOULBURN, Australia (The Adobo Chronicles) – Many of us have heard the phrase, “It’s raining cat’s and dogs,” and it’s really more of a figure of speech.  We’ve also heard “It’s raining men,” but that’s a 1980’s hit song by The Weather Girls.

However, in Australia, when one says, “It’s raining spiders,” it really IS raining spiders.

Residents of Goulburn, Australia, awoke this month to find their town shrouded in eerie, silken webs, while millions of tiny spiders rained down from above, local news reported.

“The whole place was covered in these little black spiderlings and when I looked up at the sun it was like this tunnel of webs going up for a couple of hundred meters into the sky,” resident Ian Watson told the Sydney Morning Herald. His house looked like it had been “abandoned and taken over by spiders,” he added.Capture

Australia is known as a country for all seasons. You can do practically anything at any time of year.  There are four seasons (winter, spring, summer and fall) across most of the country and a wet and dry season in the tropical north.

With this latest phenomenon, however, Australia will add a fifth season during the time when spiders fall from the sky and the ground is blanketed by white spider webs.

The new season will be called Arachnoid season.
