Funnel Cloud

We were heading back home from Honolulu today when Katie said, "Look at that cloud, it almost looks like a tornado!"

I looked, and my heart skipped a beat. It did look very tornado-like. And it was close.

In the quick glances I could take while still trying to actually drive, I could see it was really an unusual cloud formation rather than a tornado. But I was concerned that maybe it was forming into a tornado and so I was feeling a little unnerved by it and just wanted to get home.

Katie got the camera and tried to get a picture of it, but it was set to "video" instead of "photo" so we got a quick video of it as we were driving home.



Luckily, it didn't turn into anything worse but it did make the news. If it had touched the ground, it would have become a tornado.

Yikes.
