Mysterious yellow ice plops onto roof

This time of year, finding ice on your roof is no big surprise. But for a woman in the northwest suburbs, it brought investigators to her home.

For 41 years, nothing out of the ordinary has occurred at Dawn Scarpulla’s split-level home, until now.

She recently heard a big boom, she says.

“I found ice — yellow ice — on my roof,” she tells CBS 2’s Vince Gerasole.

The yellow ice broke apart and cracked her ceiling.

Could be ice build-up on a wing after a flight, loosing it on landing when opening the flaps. But it's normally a thin layer that will disintegrate in little piece when falling...  But you can also shot bucket of frozen pee with a trebuchet !

Still a chunk of compacted snow left over from de-icing with some kind of yellow sludge...

According to the video if the ice had come from a plane's toilet it would be blue ice, not yellow.

Also according to the article:

The FAA says because planes are de-iced, it’s unlikely the large icicle fell from a jet.
