As if the world isn’t scary enough, a snow tornado was spotted in NM

As if these mountains of snow dumping on the Southwest weren’t bad enough, a small snow tornado, or “snownado,” as one ABC 7 reporter called it, was spotted and filmed in New Mexico a few days ago, at one point appearing to touch the ground.

“Oh my goodness, look, there’s a twister!” someone in the video says as the eerie white vortex makes it way across the New Mexico plains. “It’s getting bigger. I think it’s just picking up a lot of snow.”

The video was posted on Feb. 17 by Antonio Chiquito of Tinian, N.M., to his Facebook page.

The snow tornado is, instead of a dust devil, a whirlwind that picks up snow, according to CNN’s Morning Express with Robin Meade. Parts of New Mexico were under winter storm warnings at the time the video was shot.

In short, we hope that is the last we shall see of these snownados.
