Often wonder if this phenomenon is what caused the Carolina Bays in the big run off of the last ice age.

It does appear to be a rare, but natural event, according to what I've read.

The Carolina Bays have those pock marks, like the fast run off of water in the last ice age, perhaps ice made those ice circles indentations in the land.

I guess no one`s interested in how those Carolina bays were formed :unsure2:

It was interesting, Doc!  But Wiki tells us what caused them....
(From your own link)
Quaternary geologists and geomorphologists argue that the peculiar features of Carolina bays can be readily explained by known terrestrial processes and repeated modification by eolian and lacustrine processes of them over the past 70,000 to 100,000 years. [2]. Also, quaternary geologists and geomorphologists believe to have found a correspondence in time between when the active modification of the rims of Carolina bays most commonly occurred and when adjacent sand dunes were active during the Wisconsin glaciation between 15,000 and 40,000 years and 70,000 to 80,000 years BP [3]. In addition, quaternary geologists and geomorphologists have repeatedly found that the orientations of the Carolina bays are consistent with the wind patterns which existed during the Wisconsin glaciation as reconstructed from Pleistocene parabolic dunes, a time when the shape of the Carolina bays was being modified [4].

Who are we to argue with quaternary geologists and geomorphologists?  (lol)

Cool and not that rare around here - why do folks jump to aliens and not use their brains.

We also have kettle bottom lakes around here - cool formation history too.

Ah yes, and the repeated modification by eolian and lacustrine processes. :yes:

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Kinda the same explantion of winds and lakes affects over periods in glacial times, but is odd to look at this phenomenon of ice cirles and their affects on a smaller scale to compare.
