During one of several storms in the province last week Mother Nature created an unusual phenomenon in the Bonavista area.

Snow rollers were spotted.

A snow roller is a rare meteorological phenomenon in which large snowballs are 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.
