Extreme Sastrugi


Of the South Pole kind - - -

I had to google for these South Pole Sastrugi

And I found all of these first

Four photos at


And this one at answers.com

Because folks, I did NOT make a trip to Antartica, even for you my bloggy fans, and while we do get BABY sastrugi here in Indiana, we have NADA to compare with these.

Very interesting! And educational. Since I've learned something, can I go home now?

Didn't know those things had a name! I'll have to add it to my mental factoid center! My little librarian action figure came from here: http://www.mcphee.com/shop/categories/Awesome-Stuff/
This company has lots of amazingly weird and awesome (and some naughty) stuff! I'm sure there's an action figure there for everyone!

I am now smarter than I was yesterday. That is a good feeling...no matter your age. Thanks for sharing!

Is there going to be a test?

Hey there smarty pants,
(I mean Keetha). Awesome photos! And yes, I am nearly in the North woods and yes I loved your comments. And yes, I won't see Spring for awhile. Hugs, Cindy

Oh, I love those pictures! Those things the wind makes with snow have a name! I almost took pictures of them around here after the last blizzard..next one...which should be next week, right? Actually, I haven't heard that we'll be getting another storm any time soon. Thank God. This is the worst winter that I've ever seen. OR, best? I love the beauty of the snow and it's effects.
