  • "When they were first discovered, snow rolls, or snow pipes as they are also called, were thought to be the work of aliens, pranksters or some undiscovered species of animals building a nest. But subsequent studies of the peculiar structures have revealed that they are all-natural, and also that they most often appear on open grounds subjected to subzero temperatures, such as the prairies of North America. Researchers have since determined that the rolls are the wintry equivalent of tumbleweed." Nature's Oddities: Snow Rolls
