Area sees unusual winter weather phenomenon

Snow rollers — wind-driven snowballs —  ­sit in a field off Diagonal Road in Carlisle Township. The unusual shapes are caused by a light coating of ice and a few inches of snow. They are rare because they require wind to roll them into the shape but not so strong that it blows them apart, the National Weather Service said. The winds and light rain Sunday night created the perfect conditions; the rarities have been spotted all over the northern part of the state.

    Could this be a symptom of “global warming” that the alarmists are warning us about?

    • Zen Grouch

      I don’t know about the “alarmists” but I know for sure the Book of Revelations does foretell of a dozen giant, powered sugar covered donuts magically appearing before Jesus comes back and kills all of the Democrats.

      From that day fourth Red Bull & sugar covered donuts will be used in the sacrament.

      • Sharktooth Martin

      GLOBAL WARMING FRAUD EXPOSED – UNDER OATH ! ! Wednesday, 22 January 2014 20:18
      January 22, 2014 — (TRN Turner Radio Network ) — In stunning testimony, under Oath, before the U.S. House of Representatives, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, a former executive of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) revealed the EPA’s goal is to “modify the DNA of Capitalism.” Put another way, the entire “Global Warming” crusade has been a complete lie from the start — to attack the free market system — and the people telling this lie KNEW it was a lie when they started telling it! This former EPA executive is now on his way to jail.

    Kind of look like tumbleweeds . . .

    Some of these look man-made, but you can’t see the track they made because it snowed.
    We have seen these around here in Ohio before, but no one pays attention.
    Just like the big deal they are recently making about the way Starlings and other birds fly in groups.
    Open your eyes to the world that is around you!
