Snow Rollers...

 The "perfect" weather conditions: frozen ground covered with the perfect consistency & temperature of snow, and a windy day allows Mother Nature to attempt to create her own snowmen or "Snow Rollers".

These Snow Rollers were popping up in fields throughout western PA, Ohio, and New York on Monday and trended fairly heavily on social media.  Quite a few news stations picked up on the odd but neat phenomenon.  I don't know about you, but I didn't notice any snow rollers around Chester County, however TLC will be exploring snowflakes and snow related crafts at a program on February 8th.  Bundle up and come out to Bucktoe Creek Preserve to learn more about Chester County's take on snow. 

**I used quotes on perfect, because I'm not sure even the cold weather fans (or polar bears) can call this brisk weather we have been having perfect weather.
