An unusual circle of ice that formed where the Nokasippi River flows into Upper South Long Lake in late December 2015, was a bit of a local phenomenon in the Brainerd lakes area.

News of the ice formation spread quickly across the region, and now the strange occurrence can be relived again this Sunday on the "Top Ten: Bizarre Weather" show on the Weather Channel.

According to Linda Callahan, a clips producer for the Weather Channel, the footage of the spinning circle of ice, recorded by Dispatch photographer Steve Kohls, will be eighth in a list of the top 10 bizarre weather occurrences.

You can also view the original video created by Kohls by visiting Spinning Circle of Ice  here on the Brainerd Dispatch website.
