Local area is full of snow-bales. This is one of the rarest meteorological phenomena because a lot of unusual conditions should occur simultaneously. If you spotted these snow-bales you can consider yourself lucky. These are known as Snow-Rollers, Snow-Bales or Snow-Doughnuts and they are just what these names suggest. Self-rolling large snowballs formed naturally as chunks of snow are blown along the ground by wind, picking up material along the way, in much the same way that the large snowballs used in snowmen are made.
