Rare snow rollers appear in area

January 28, 2014

Mother Nature surprised area residents yet again on Monday as many awoke to find snow rollers, a unique natural sculpture created by high winds and snow, in their yards and fields.
Hundreds of these typically hollow formations could be seen throughout western Pennsylvania. They were reported to have ranged in size from small marbles to large pumpkins, although weather records indicate they can be as large as a 30 gallon drum and typically average 10 to 12 inches in diameter.
