A snow roller only happens when there is a crust of ice or hard snow over what's on the ground & high winds blow anything loose & combine it with the snow that's falling & it rolls into balls or log shapes as it goes. I'll try & get some pics, I have a black lab/border collie mix, about 65#s & some were bigger than him.

200 Trips,1 Piece of coal at a time,and your burnin' ! We'll discuss ash removal in our next installment! This is like the '77 & '78 Winters! Keepa,there 'aint no way you were in Diapers back then ! Big Concern is like Rob R.'s Father had said about this kind of Cold keeping things Honest. How long of a duration of Low Cold will will have before Hard Failures make themselves apparent? Throw Another Bucket Full On,Gang! :flex:

AccuWeather is reporting -14 degrees right now in Wadsworth, OH. The weather Underground back yard stations around me are ranging from -12 to -15 degrees. with the closest one to my house at -12.3 degrees. Temps are supposed to fall until about 8 AM and then start creeping up.

69 degrees in here. The Coal Gun just ran for a good while, but it caught up and shut off the fan.

UPDATE: It looks like Medina and Wadsworth will both log -14 degrees as the low for today. I'm smack inbetween these two cities.
