Snow Rollers

What are snow rollers? Snow rollers are a rare phenomenon where snowball form naturally by a very strong wind blowing across a flat, snow covered field when the snow is easily compacted. It's natures way of making a snowballs.

They started appearing Sunday in many fields around Vermont. The conditions were perfect mid-day. Thanks to our friends at WCAX, News Channel 3 we got to see some photos from all around the state.
