Yes I fully agree John, the UK weather has been really action-packed these last few years. That's already several tornadoes in the UK since Jan, throw in the severe frosts, fog, snow events along with the Summer floods then it has been wild indeed.

I saw the video clip of the waterspout on TV and it was without doubt a tornado. A dark funnel was curving down from the cloud base then there was clear sky below (no condensation funnel at mid point) but on the surface was a well defined disturbance rotating on the sea. It was an excellent waterspout/tornado. I would love to see one of those. I'm hoping it will appear online soon so we can get a better look at it. The video clip on the tv this evening was short but enough to see the vortex on the surface.
