(ATTICA, Kan.) — Mother Nature made snow balls Monday night.  Residents from Attica sent us photos of what are technically called snow rollers. 

Storm Team 12 Meterologist Ross Janssen says they are very unusual and only happen when you have perfect snow conditions.  He says in order for snow rollers to happen, you need wind and a heavy wet snow. 

Monday night, the winds were at least 30 miles an hour.  He says the snow that fell was heavy and wet and stuck to itself more than the ground.  When the winds got going, it started blowing the snow into essentially a snowball.  But these nature made snow balls are hollow inside.
