raining frogs are a known phenomenon actually...
as well as fish.
I think the commonly accepted theory is storms (especially circular ones like tornadoes) pick up tadpoles and minnows, which then mature a little bit
in frozen stasis in the clouds, then eventually get too heavy (like rain itself) and come down, thawing on the way.... This is from memory, so there
may be more details I'm missing here....
As for the fireballs, likely meteorites or space debris... Ice blocks, are likely similar to the frog/fish thing, where the ice in the cloud gets too
condensed, and then falls (but unlike hail, it originates from a bigger piece)
