The Natural Phenomenon In Buffalo That Only Happens During Wintertime

It ain’t over ’till it’s over, and Mother Nature has apparently decided she’s not done with winter weather quite yet. (It’s fine – not like it’s April or anything.) While we’re on the topic of the white stuff, here’s an interesting bit of information: there’s a natural phenomenon in Buffalo that only happens during wintertime. They’re called “snow rollers” and they’re fascinating. Read on to learn more about it and be sure to watch the video of the snow formations in action at the end of this article!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

Take a look at the full video by Eric Homan Video Productions to see footage of snow rollers taken in nearby Ohio.
