Tornado on winnie

6 posts in this topic

Just got back from winnie after 6 nights of camping and fishing. What a blast! Fish were caught but not very many. The most excitement was when a tornado formed right before OUR eyes between Farley crick and Pidgeon river. We were standing on Pidgeon dam and it formed, touched down and died out when it got close to shore. It happened pretty quick but I'm sure alot of people saw it so if you did back me up on this one. First one I have ever saw and it was awesome. I'm glad it didn't come our way!!

I was fishing between Birches and High Banks when I saw it. One of the neatest things I have seen in nature. I tried to high tail it to the launch but I had spun the prop and could only go about 5 miles per hour. Good Times.

When they are on the water they are called water spouts. They die pretty quickly because the water cools it fast and the hot pressure inducing air cools. Neat and scary though.
