well, it has always kinda been a dream of mine to see a tornado in action. today, i got my chance. i was jogging after work, and on my cool-down walk...i saw this guy poking out of the air.



after i saw that, there was some very nearby lightning...so i sprinted home. after catching my breath, i went out to the backyard to see where it went. totally surprised me to see this...not 5min. later.



technically, it was a waterspout in the bay down the street, and eventually touched down. but it was very intense to see firsthand.

ive seen a lot of water spouts and they still give me the chills, out at sea (and lake erie) you learn to go around them because they go with the wind, but on shore you cant out manuver them because they are tornados.lol.. they are an awesome example of mother natures power. thank god it didnt hit land..

great photos too..

Man, that is freaky. There's a tornado warning out right now where I live. I hope I never have to see one! You have some serious stones for taking those pics that close man.

Awesome pictures. I've seen a few funnel clouds but never actually saw one on the ground. Heard one that was on the ground that was about two miles from where I live. I was out at Mosquito the day all those tornadoes went through Niles back in the mid 80's I think it was. That was a crazy day.
