The Natural Phenomenon In Ohio That Only Happens During Wintertime
Here in Ohio, winter can be inconvenient—but it can also be really beautiful.
If you’ve lived in Ohio for a few years, you may have seen some curious looking snow figures pop up during the winter months. What looks like mini snow bales are actually called snow rollers. When the conditions are just right, these rare formations cover the fields of Ohio and baffle those unfamiliar with them.
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!
