Today's Weather: A Weird Cloud of McNeil

McNeil saw a weird cloud today. Here it is, via modern day camera phone. McNeil was at work and could not talk. "I saw a weird cloud. I'm sending you a picture," was the entirety of McNeil's breathless phone message. Perhaps later on we will get an eyewitness account of the cloud from McNeil. Yes, it certainly seems weird at first glance - a tornado-shaped cloud that is not a tornado? Somewhat like a snake that resembles a poisonous snake for defensive reasons, but is not (see the coral snake and the king snake)? - but perhaps there are unexplored layers of weirdness yet to be recounted. This has been the glorious return of our "Today's Weather" feature.
