    Snow Rollers on the Camas Prairie

    Have to be seen to be believed. Not man made but a natural event.

    "On the evening of March 31st, 2009, Tim Tevebaugh was driving home from work east of Craigmont in the southern Idaho Panhandle (see map below). Across the rolling hay fields, Tim saw a very unusual phenomenon. The snow rollers that he took pictures of are extremely rare because of the unique combination of snow, wind, temperature and moisture needed to create them. They form with light but sticky snow and strong (but not too strong) winds. These snow rollers formed during the day as they weren't present in the morning on Tim's drive to work."

    They're smaller, but look just like the rolls of hay that'll be in those fields at harvest.

    Yeah what wouldn't anyone on this forum have given to have been there with their camera and some inspiration!

    Reminds me of those rocks in Death Valley that move around by themselves. I think there is a theory how/why it happens, but I don't know if anyone has proved it yet.
