Fossils in the Snow

Some snow has finally accumulated in the Louisville, Kentucky area. It was maybe 1 cm or so and contributed to about 100 auto accidents. I am guessing the melted snow on the road froze and helped with all the accidents.

I decided to document the occasion of snow by photographing some of the fossils outside on the cleaning racks.  Devonian Period corals found in Clark County, Indiana.  On a side note, the Indiana State Museum has taken quite a few pictures of their fossil collection and posted it on their website.  Here is a sampling of horn corals pictures.
