Winter Wonder

This is a random post about something we've been wondering for a couple years.  The past two summers we've driven across the country along I-80 and we noticed these partial fences on the plains along the freeway.  We couldn't imagine what purpose they served and it has taken me this long to research it.  So here is my answer to our question... They are snow fences.  I borrowed this picture from another blog, High Plains Drifter, and I found this article with interesting information on the how and why behind the snow fences.  So now we know. ;)
