Roanoke man captures “snow roller” on camera
Izak Veldsman send me these photos (above) of what looks like a snow burrito. Turns out, these are a rare meteorological phenomenon that occurs when chunks of snow/sleet are blown along the ground (or in this case, the wind blowing over the car), causing it to roll into a ball. This is much the way you’d take a snowball and roll it on the ground to make a snowman.
What happened in this case is the snow/sleet got icy, at the same time the high winds came through Wednesday night. The wind kept blowing the snow/sleet over on itself until it formed these snow rollers.
