This water spout, a swirling column of air and water mist, appeared just offshore Cleveland Metroparks Edgewater Park yesterday evening. This spectacular sight formed quickly along the dark flat base of a line of developing cumulus clouds over Lake Erie. It dissipated after a mere ten minutes. Chuck Slusarczyk Jr. scored a few photos of this weather giant, from where he was positioned just to the east. Waterspouts are fairly common on the Great Lakes during late summer and early fall, with a record 66+ waterspouts reported over just a seven-day period in 2003 (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration "The Great Waterspout Outbreak of 2003"). – jb, Naturalist
