Over the past several months, many meteorology terms have made their way into the American lexicon. Last summer saw the rise of the derecho, and we are all too familiar with the nightmare that was the polar vortex. Another, more familiar term may be coming back into the news.

During a walk on a snowy winter day, you may have seen numerous log-like snow formations in a field and asked yourself, "what on earth are those? Were they left by aliens? Did kids roll some snow up into a log shape?" These logs of snow are a weather phenomenon referred to as snow rollers. They are relatively rare formations that can happen if outdoor conditions are just right and all the necessary ingredients cooperate. This winter (especially during January), snow rollers popped up throughout the Midwest and Northeast, with numerous reports in Ohio, Illinois, and Pennsylvania. Many people took to social media to post pictures and talk about snow rollers they saw. Read More
