(INSIDE EDITION) -- Before you complain too much about this winter's bone-chilling temperatures, consider the residents of a village in the Alps who recently witnessed a 'snow tornado.'

Folks in the Austrian municipality of Stall saw the shocking phenomenon as it swirled through town on Tuesday.

Thanks to a witness with a camera at the ready, the rest of us can now see the swirling snow, too.

Called a 'gustnado,' the vortex happened to occur in snowy Stall, where it picked up the white stuff as it blew through town.

A gustnado occurs at the edge of thunderstorms that are not capable of creating actual tornadoes. They are short-lived but can sometimes cause damage to structures.

Luckily, Stall appeared to make it through unscathed.
