    SLW isn't feeling good at all today, looks like a stomach flu or something
    so after I was sure she was ok I went to our gym for a quick workout.

    I was on a machine near the front of the building, big glass windows
    looking due west.

    There was a dark cloud that was bubbling...not doing much...no wind
    or rain. Suddenly the sucker drops a very interesting looking funnel
    cloud that for the next 20 minutes got bigger, than smaller, then finally
    (and thankfully) just faded away. I didn't have my glasses on but you
    could see rotation, a couple of other people noticed it too. Pretty cool.

    :D
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Figures. I'm in Michigan when the fun stuff happens.

    Edit: Are you positive is was a funnel cloud? There wasn't a single severe weather report in the states of Missourri or Illinois today. And neither St. Louis Int or Scott AFB reported any storms today. I've seen tons of people confuse weird shaped clouds as funnel clouds before.

    Well I saw rotation, not a whole lot but some. In the Bahamas I saw a water spout
    drop out of a tiny dark cloud you wouldn't have looked twice at. :D

    Waterspouts are a bit differant. We had one at Japan that formed out of a stratus deck, which is impossible for a standard tornado/funnel cloud to do. I'll see if I got some pictures of it when I get home.
