Isn't this how a waterspout works over the ocean (i.e. the water rises up to the cloud)? I've seen lots of those form down in FL, (one time about 50
yards from our boat in the Gulf).
The scariest weather event (to me anyway) is how calm it gets right before a tornado. It's the most peaceful calm you've ever experienced...then all
hell breaks loose! That's freaky!
I was standing in my parents driveway one day looking up at a "greeny meanie" headed our way. It was about 85 degrees outside at the time. It got
really windy for about 10 minutes, and you could feel the temperature drop about 30 degrees. Then it was just perfectly still. There was literally
no sound at all, no wind, nothing. It was like being in a soundproof booth. The temp was a delightful 65 degrees and it was just perfectly still.
No birds chirping, just silence. It stayed like that for about 3 minutes.
Then, just like that, it sounded like someone dumped a ship load of marbles out of the sky. Hail everywhere. In about 2 seconds the winds picked up
to about 60mph and there it was...a giant funnel cloud menacingly passing directly overhead!
The tornado touched down about a mile away, and all the crazy stuff you read about happened. Right at the first point where the tornado touched there
was an intersection with stop signs. The tornado ripped one of those stop signs of and flung it like a buzz-saw across the street into this guys
house. The stop sign sliced through his entire house, went through the exterior wall, four interior walls and out the other exterior sidewall into
his back yard! Tornado didn't touch his house other than slicing a hole all the way through it with that stop sign! Crazy!
