Snow Rollers Spotted Across Ohio

Central Ohio residents are seeing snow rollers across the region.

Snow rollers come in all shapes and sizes. Some are solid, while some have holes. In fact, some people even call them snow donuts.

It looks like someone started a snowman or snow ball, only human hands did not play a role in shaping these snow rollers.

The ground must be covered with ice and then wet snow. It then takes a strong wind to create the rolled snow. Snow rollers are more common in hilly areas, but the precise nature of the conditions required makes them a very rare phenomenon.
