While Isabel caused destruction in many areas, it brought a gift to Primo D’Agata of Berlin, Connecticut. “I thought it was hail and I said to my wife, ‘Ginger, it’s hailing,'” he says. “I went back to reading my paper and then I saw the things were still there and were not melting. I went out and saw hundred of these white things.” They turned out to be eggs.
Robin Vinci writes in the New Britain Herald that the eggs are tiny?about the size of pearls. “They are white with what looks like eyes in the middle. They looked like salamanders or barley,” D’Agata says. “Ginger picked one up and it was slimy.”
