New York City, NY (1835)
"Most furious storm in 20 years .... Snow rollers were seen in Battery Park when natural snowballs, formed when a strong gusty wind blows over a moist snow surface, were pushed along by the wind until they grew to a 24-inch diameter. At this point, they became too heavy and were left to dot Battery Park like so many boulders in a New England hayfield". (New York Post)
