Since we don't have pictures of the ones you saw, I found a photo of some on the web. My brother in law showed us some from Northern KY a few years ago but I have lost the images. The photo attached here is not quite as dramatic as the ones he sent.  His were hollow tubes really. Is this what we are talking about?

I have not seen the ones you are mentioning but it is possible for the wind to make weird tubes out of the snow as well as snowballs.  My brother-in-law sent us pictures on them a few years ago that showed up in the lawn at his workplace.  I have them somewhere. If I find them I'll pass a few on.
