Default Re: Saturday

It was really hard to tell because we were driving on the highway, and when my friend saw what it was, she sped up.

It definitely looked to me like they were rotating, and those three separate clouds extending to the ground very quickly came together (over the span of a minute or less) to form that massive on in the second picture. I couldn't tell if the bigger form was rotating (I was much further away at that point), but I would assume that it was given that the smaller ones that formed it were.

In addition - by that point it seemed to be moving out onto the lake, which may account for why it took on such a weird shape.
