Same here Joe, just like you said the backlight is what throws me off, it would be great to have a view from the other side

No doubt! That certainly would have been helpful to see.

Rob looked at Google Earth last night in that spot, and it was over a corn field surrounded by trees.

After several times of reviewing the video. With Robert and Joe. It is possible as this thing was rocking and rolling and the cell itself was textbook. The "S" feature was what stuck out to Rob and I.

Remember a tornado may or may not be visible with a condensation funnel. The photo does appear to show debris.

It will be interesting to recieve Todds input. However with us under the meso on this storm I suspect this video could be fodder in this years Spotter Training.

Ok guys, This is what Todd said..

I would have to see a little more video or a few more pictures,
but since I can't - right now I would be leaning towards it being a
tornado. There looks like to be a funnel at the cloud base and maybe
even a little debris at the ground, but again it would be best to see
some more evidence.

Aright so the more and more I look at the video the more I lean into it being a 'small' tornado, very week, but visible. I saw the s shape, but rain did come into contact as the video went on. Its amazing to say theres nothing here and after months of looking at it again and again and again you come up with something totally different. it just goes to prove that what you see at first may not be what you thought. You learn as you go and well theres a ton of yrs left to go. You keep learning till the day you die.
