This is the most underwhelmingly written article on a very interesting story.

The story is completely unbelievable. I mean an insurance company covering a meteor strike that wasn't part of the coverage plan? Ridiculous claims.

“I wasn’t sure what to do so I called 911 and, when I was speaking with the operator, I flipped over my pillow and saw that a rock had slipped between two pillows.”

Just a rock. That burned through the atmosphere.

If I had to die accidently, that's my preferred way. You don't see it coming, and it's a gnarly story.

I love how there is a construction site blasting close by (who denied the damage), but her and a policeman immediately decide "it must have been a meteorite".

That rock has sharp edges & looks like it broke off something, while a meteorite usually shows signs of heat & melting. https://t.co/​N5248XRR17
