Snow Rollers

A rare phenomenon on at the Chubb Farm from the recent wind… snow rollers. #gallery-1 { margin: auto; } #gallery-1 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-1 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-1 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; } /* see gallery_shortcode() in wp-includes/media.php */

From Wikipedia: The following conditions are needed for snow rollers to form:

  1. The ground must be covered by a layer of ice to which snow will not stick.

  2. The layer of ice must be covered by wet, loose snow with a temperature near the melting point of ice.

  3. The wind must be strong enough to move the snow rollers, but not strong enough to blow them apart.
