This is the bridge I cross everyday to and from work. Guess this was not too long ago today...

From our local newspaper:

TAMPA — A waterspout formed near the Gandy Bridge as a thunderstorm rolled into Tampa Bay Wednesday afternoon.

The waterspout was reported about 12:30 p.m. and dissipated about 1 p.m., said Bay News 9 meteorologist Mike Clay.

"It was just a tiny, little storm right over the bay," Clay said. The storm, now weakening, was moving into South Tampa.

That is an awesome picture! Thanks for posting.
Sure has been some crazy weather the last few years.
Even a tornado in Colorado the other day.

Very cool. Speaking of odd weather...I am cleaning up from the aftermath of a tornado that hit my neighborhood last Thursday. I live in Cobb County in GA and this is the first confirmed tornado since 1999. EF-1 with 110mph winds. Took 7 trees down in my yard, 2 hit the house and have about $20k worth of damage. Nobody was hurt which is amazing but the power of this thing was like nothing I have ever witnessed before.

Glad to hear it was only damage and no injuries. Sorry to hear it though.

Nothing strange about a tornado in Colorado. On the front range it is not unusual for there to be dozens in a single day. In fact, many years Colorado records more tornados than any other state.

If anywhere but on a bridge, I would be ok and thinking how cool that it is. If I was on a bridge seeing that, my pants would be poopy!

Man, that is horrible! Unfortunately, we have two massive trees where branches could fall on the house in a storm. I've been working on minimizing them, but I will need some kind of lift to do one of the trees. Way too high for even a long, long ladder.

Not a true statement. Maybe smaller E2 or less tornadoes, but nothing like other parts of the country. Possibly you live in a more active part of your state, but overall, Colorado does not get many.

For a complete list of Tornadoes, E3 and up, here is the link from NOAA (scroll down for annual lists):


2011, which was a very small amount of Tornados for Colorado that year::

Other than traffic isn't that a nice ride?

Although you don't always see them, waterspouts are always something interesting.

I remember living on the beach down in Manatee County, where I was on my back porch one morning and watched a waterspout move onto the beach although it didn't last long after coming ashore it was interesting to see.


I am sorry for this off topic question, but how has the fishing been down there as of late?

I truly do miss it now that I am here in Atlanta....

Great photograph, as a kid up North at our cottage they were almost a weekly occurrence. They were mesmerizing and I always tried to catch one in our 14 foot aluminum boat with a 9.9 on her.....LOL it was like chasing a jet flying with a kite.

Now that I know better its a good thing I was cruising in a barge or I just might have caught one.

Thanks for posting that picture.

Yes and your commute does look nice I envy you.

Regards, Iwinder
