Wow, this has been one weird and wacky Winter in my territory! OMD it's been freezing cold and really snowy and just plain nasty. I really love some super snow zoomies, but this is just crazy! BOL
We've had Frost Quakes. This happens when it's so cold that the ground actually fractures and the sound is like a really loud gunshot. Sometimes you can even find the big cracks in the ground where it's happened.
Then on Monday morning, we woke up to this:
SNOW ROLLS!They turned up (get it?!?) here in Pennsylvania and parts of Ohio. The wind was really strong and just right...and the snow was light and fluffy and just right...and the two together did this. The perfect kind of wind hit the perfect kind of snow and it started rolling right up.
They range from about the size of a peep's fist clear up to about the size of a 55 gallon drum. Most of them seem to be about the size of a basketball.
This phenomenon has been all over our news. We even saw a video clip on CNN.com yesterday. Oh, it's really unique and incredible. My peeps have never seen anything like it...ever!
So, there you go. Do any of you have these in your territory?
Grr and Woof,
