Crazy Central Oregon Weather: Tornados and Snow!

What crazy weather Central Oregon has seen during the past 24 hours!  There was a tornado in Burns, Oregon (okay, so that is more Eastern Oregon than Central, but close enough).   We just don't get tornado's around here.  I have heard of maybe 3 or 4 in my 51 years.  These photo's came from the Z21 website, and there is a link to the story below.

This photo was taken by Don Bodewig of Burns, Oregon.

These two pictures were taken by Connie Robinns.

Then, I looked out the window this morning and  it is snowing like crazy!  Gotta love the springtime.  The focus of these pictures are so that you can see how much snow we have and not necessarily for the scenery.  It is still coming down hard. 

We still have the stuff on the patio that we were using for yard work on Sunday.  Dang!  I finally got the dead flowers off of the plant stand though.

Update:  I took these at 7:15 a.m. We currently have 4" of snow and it is still coming down hard.  It is really pretty.

Awesome images! Unbelievable Mother Nature!! I love snow...but not in April! We've had it here in Missouri in April, though, a time or two. One year, not too many years ago, our baseball Cardinals Home Opener was postponed because of snow! Not a "Rain Out", but a "Snow Out"! :D
