after crop circles... snow rollers






I hadnt seen them on my morning drive, so they must have formed in the space of a few hours, said Mr Tevebaugh, who witnessed the scene eight miles east of Craigmont.

Each frozen hay bale-like formation was up to about 2ft high and not a single footprint could be seen surrounding them.

But despite claims of alien interference, snow rollers are understood by experts to be an extremely rare naturally occurring phenomenon.

They require just the right combination of temperature, humidity, wind speed, terrain and of course, snow.

2. How pretty!
I've never heard of such a thing. You can live on this planet for quite awhile and learn something new and fascinating every day.

I've lived most of life in snow climates, and I've never seen such a phenomenon.

Thanks for posting this!

6. They actually require a very specific organization of events. In otherwise, an organic example of
intelligence.

9. We used to make those as kids
Start rolling a snow ball at the top of a hill and let the roll down...they would get really big.
