  •  Waterspouts, eh? (6+ / 0-)

    I experienced a thunder-hailstorm a few days ago, but I was too far from the lake to get waterspouted (not to be confused with waterboarded).

    Waterspouts are quite rare over cold water, aren't they?

      I am wondering when the ocean will be warm enough that the tropical storms that track west from CA and Mexico and then die of the cold water, actually get bigger from warmer tropical water, and actually get to California?

      I missed seeing a waterspout in the Santa Barbara channel one afternoon by the amount of time it took to call and be turned down for a made landfall in the city shoreline park which really had everybody excited.
        She and I both missed out, haha.

      Old maritime stories tell of ship mates shooting guns at waterspout which would cause them to collapse, perhaps the shock wave of the shot, not the bullet disrupted it just enough.

      Everybody read the crow gift diary, pretty cool, somebody repub to Backyard Science?
