There was a report of a frozen teddy bear falling out the sky in AL during 4/27/11, not sure if that was ever verified.
There's also the famous report of a large, frozen chunk of mattress found in Boston Harbor after the 1953 Worcester tornado, and a diary from Tupelo, MS was found in a field ~25 miles away, "frozen solid," after the 1936 tornado. It seems pretty unbelievable, but it makes sense given how high and far we know debris can be lofted in violent tornadoes. Pretty neat to see photographic proof in this case, though.
