Snow Roller

We just learned about what a blizzard is.

Another type of weather is called a snow roller.

When there is a strong enough wind and the right kinds of snow are piled on top of each other, the wind can blow some small chunks of snow around and it can collect into larger and larger snow balls. This is the same kind of snow rolling used in making snowmen, but this is just done with no one else around.

Sometimes it makes a ball just like making a snowman, and sometimes it makes a long roll like a carpet being rolled up.
