Snow rollers, seen along Dixie Highway north of Wapakoneta, are a rare, natural phenomena, according to the National Weather Service, that require the right mix of snow, wind and cold. The snow must be icy and crunchy underfoot and falling snow cannot stick to the lower layer for them to occur.

Wendell Hampp, 91, has lived in the area since 1940 and said he has never seen anything like it.
