  1. Anybody here have any experience with waterspouts on Lake Erie?
     
  2. Years ago on erie. My wife and I were on one of the headboats out of drawbridge. It was a really nasty day. Had a little spout blow right through the Wantanna II. Kinda cool, never seen anything like it before or since.

    Kgone and I were out in 2004 i think... Clouds were comming and and Ken was telling the Time he seen one from "State Rd hill" mind you this was 13 miles or so, from the lake @ one of the Highest points in Parma and commented...."Kev, ya know, i never seen water spout before"...Kev proceeding... "Well you will NOW.. Look over there!!!!!" man.. was that a site.... wisely we went in and the other way..

    We saw over 25 in one day a few years ago out of Fairport. Some were huge and lasted a long time. Most were a good bit east except one that formed right over us! We had to make a quick move. I took some phots and shipped them to Big Daddy. He was able to post them then. Maybe he will again.
