I would like nothing more than the proof of various cryptids, alien civilizations, even alien visitors to be found. But that proof will come only through rigorous science and objective analysis, and by holding evidence to the highest standards of scrutiny. Born in south eastern Pennsylvania, i have found myself at one time or another living in Chicago, Cleveland, Raleigh-Durham, on the island of Kaua'i and finally landed on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State. I have turned my hand to various professions from early work in 3d graphics to historic building restoration, carpentry and log home building to working in a bronze art foundry on the WWII Veterans Memorial. Currently I am a writer, script writer and working for a non profit organization called Empowerment Through Connection which is involved in equine assisted therapy for veterans, at risk teens and women.

Crop Circles are a well known rural occurrence in the summer growing season months, but what is a juvenile, OCD alien to do in the long cold winter months?

Perhaps Greg Newkirk over at Who Forted has found the answer for us.

Thanks to the film Signs, most people, even those without interests into the fringe, fortean, and Ufological have at least a cursory knowledge of crop circles and their designs. While it might still be far too cold for their to be any crops in Connecticut, they still got the circles.. in the snow.

Residents of New Haven first noticed the patterns appear downtown early this morning, but not very many of the locals were too impressed.

“I think it’s somebody who has a lot of time on their hands, so they decided to have some fun in the snow,” Gloria Caprio told WFSB Channel 3. Even internationally recognized crop circle detective and author of Circular Evidence Colin Andrews took the time to check out the strange symbols.

“The lack of symmetry, which I have seen around the world with regard to crop circles isn’t here. The spiral symmetry from an elevated position lacks preciseness,” he said with a very authoritative British accent.

Apparently, Andrews has investigated Snow Circles in the Netherlands, but claims that the largest photographed snow circle was actually photographed outside of MIT in Boston in 1993. You can check out the photograph of that formation here, but be forewarned: it lacks symmetry.

You can scope out the full Channel 3 piece on the Connecticut Snow Circles at Fox5 Vegas.

I am personally appalled at the close minded attitude of the people interviewed in this supernatural occurrence. It would take temperatures in excess of 32 degrees Fahrenheit to melt snow like that! Why do these temperature variances not melt the surrounding snow?? Do people ever think of that? And symmetry, schmmemmetry, these are highly advanced beings who have passed through other dimensions to attain a level of techno/spiritual awareness unknown to us. Why should we assume they possess our sense of aesthetics? We should not, it is pure humano-centrist thinking to assume such a thing.

There is clearly a message here for City Planner’s offices of Connecticut and for the nations of the world. Your side walks need not be straight! And keep them clear of snow, people can get hurt dammit!

    I have always wondered why there are crop circles but no, or few, snow circles.  Aliens must hate the cold. 

    This is my favorite winter phenomenon:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snow_roller  I saw them when I was a kid– snow balls rolled by themselves with no footprints around is freaky, and I was sorely disappointed to learn they were not paranormal.
