For all the annoyances of never-ending indoor recess, bundling up, shoveling walks, not to mention those who have lost power, there is a special beauty this weather brings. Yesterday morning, we woke up to these unusual snow sculptures in our yard. As I drove to school, I saw them dotted throughout farm fields and front yards. We even had a few in our school yard. They are called snow rollers. They are beautiful, cylindrical sheets of snow...nature's snowballs. Apparently, they are quite rare. The conditions need to be just right for them to form.
