If you haven’t heard, there’s been some inclement weather around Houston over the last couple of days. I went over to the airport after work today (really, yesterday) to study for my FAA check ride. As I pulled in, I noticed some interesting clouds just west of the airport. I did what every good American should do when staring death in the face: I whipped out my phone to catch some video!

Watch the flag as it changes direction! It wasn’t much of a funnel and it dissipated fairly quickly, but this is the first funnel cloud I’ve seen with my own eyes. I thought I’d be a little more excited about it, but my reaction was somewhat blase.
