A rare phenomenon on at the Chubb Farm from the recent wind… snow rollers.
From Wikipedia: The following conditions are needed for snow rollers to form:
- The ground must be covered by a layer of ice to which snow will not stick.
- The layer of ice must be covered by wet, loose snow with a temperature near the melting point of ice.
- The wind must be strong enough to move the snow rollers, but not strong enough to blow them apart.
