Texas Blizzard Has Now Produced a ‘Snownado’
By Ryan Phillips | Feb 15, 2021, 6:37 PM EST
Things are bad in Texas right now. There’s a massive blizzard blanketing the state, along with single-digit temperatures and statewide blackouts. But perhaps nothing was as terrifying as seeing the word “Snownado” come across my Twitter timeline.

In the East Texas town of Gun Barrell City witnesses recorded what looked like a tornado in the middle of the blizzard. The now-dubbed “Snownado” swirled above Cedar Creek Lake for a bit before dissipating.
