Snow rollers!

Posted April 24, 2009 7:36 a.m. EDT

I'm thrilled about the 90-degree weather this weekend.  I wish it could be permanent.  I am anti-cold weather.

But if you like it, here's something fun.  These are "snow rollers" in Idaho.  According to the National Weather Service, it's "a very unusual phenomenon. The snow rollers that he took pictures of are extremely rare because of the unique combination of snow, wind, temperature and moisture needed to create them. They form with light but sticky snow and strong (but not too strong) winds."
