    Winter Miscellany

    Have any of you ever seen these? I don't think I have or if I did it simply didn't register at the time. We get a few good snows during some winters but they aren't usually followed by strong winds. Maybe someday!

    I saw that in the Powder River Basin in Wyoming, some years back. looked like someone had been rolling up snow to make a snowman, and had been interrupted, and never finished.

    Frost flowers are another cold weather phenomenon that I've never seen!

    Behind Minnehaha's Frozen Falls ... Beautiful! The photos from the front look as if the water was instantaneously frozen while in mid rush. From behind the falls, the ice looks like one gigantic icicle!
