These fascinating pictures show hundreds of snow rollers - a strange and rare weather phenomenon consisting of naturally-made snowballs.

这些奇妙的令人着迷的图片呈现出了数百个(风卷起的)雪卷——包含天然制成的雪球在内的一种稀奇罕见的天气现象。

The natural sculptures roll up in the style of a tumbleweed or a hay bale and leave a trail behind them showing how they were made. They are delicate and crumble completely at the slightest touch.

这些天然的雪雕或是卷成风滚草或是卷成干草捆的造型,在(无人踩过)的皑皑雪地上留下揭示它们如何形成的条条足迹。它们很易碎,轻轻一碰就会完全碎掉。

Snow rollers can only be formed when the snow is cold but not frozen and the wind is strong enough to move snow but not break it.

雪卷只有在积雪温度够低(冰点以下)但不至于结冰、风力要在能推动积雪但不会吹散它的情况下才能形成。

A field full of the unusual snow rollers was discovered in Glassford South Lanarkshire by Eunice Clarke on Tuesday.

尤妮斯·克拉克于周二在南拉纳克郡格拉斯福德发现并拍下了这片满是罕见雪卷的田野景象。

The 55-year-old part-time nurse could not believe that she saw so many up close.

55岁的兼职护士不敢相信自己能近距离看到这么多(雪卷)。

She said: 'We'd been snowed in all morning and we'd taken the dogs across the field and my husband eventually managed to get the car out onto the main road.

她说:“整个早上都在下雪,我们遛狗(散步)穿过田野。我丈夫终于设法把车开到了主大道上。”

'He rang me to tell me about something interesting looking in the field near our house.

“他打电话给我,跟我说他在家附近的田野那儿发现了些有趣的东西。”

'I finished walking the dogs then went down for a wander and I couldn't believe it. They just looked like miniature hay bales but made of snow.

“我遛完狗,随后走了段路到达田野那儿,然后我简直不敢相信(自己所看到的)。它们看起来就像是迷你版的干草捆堆,只不过是用雪做的。”

'There's hundreds of them and you can see straight through them some were really big and they were everywhere.

“田野里有数百个(雪卷),一眼望过去,你能看到有些雪卷真的很大,它们到处都是。”

'But when I touched them they were very soft and immediately fell to pieces.

“但它们非常松散,我一碰它们就碎掉了。”

'You could tell where it had happened because you could see the lines in the field - as if someone was rolling snow all the way down to make them.

“你可以说出它是从哪里开始形成的,因为你能看到它在田野上留下的长长痕迹——就好像有人一路将雪球滚到这里。”

'They had all these trails at the back of them. I was stopping people walking their dog so that they could join me in having a look at them.

“它们后面都有条长长的印迹。我当时阻止了(想要踩进雪地)遛狗的人们,这样他们就能同我一起来欣赏这一奇景。”

'I follow weather things online but had only ever seen them in USA. I couldn't believe it.'

“我在网上会密切跟进关注有关天气(奇象)的内容,但只在美国看过这种事。我简直不敢相信。”
