Jan. 19 (UPI) -- A couple driving through the Ohio countryside captured video of an unusual event -- a snownado whirlwind whipping snow through the air.

‎Kristin Ashalee Mattox posted a video to Facebook showing what she witnessed while driving through the countryside near Coshocton.

The video shows a snownado, aka a snow devil -- a whirlwind spinning snow like a mini tornado.

"We saw a Snownado or a Snow Devil today on our way home from Coshocton, OH on SR 83!!" Mattox wrote. "According to the Internet these are very rare and only a handful have ever been caught on camera!! Very cool!!!"
