    Rare Spinning Ice Disks : 25-Nov-2013

    Have you ever seen of these? Hunters along North Dakota's Sheyenne River reported seeing large rotating ice disks - upto 55-feet wide - spinning in the middle of the river.

    Its not an unknown phenomenon, but it is relatively rare, said Loegering, who lives in rural Casselton, about 20 miles west of Fargo. Allen Schlag, a National Weather Service hydrologist in Bismarck, and Greg Gust, a weather service meteorologist in Grand Forks, said a combination of cold, dense air last weekend and an eddy in the river likely caused the disk. Its actually quite beautiful, Schlag said.
