Rat, try asking this question in the general weather, you might be more successfull!! Did you see the spout up that way this afternoon? I just saw a photo of it.

There was a waterspout off Shellharbour this afternoon that got itself onto the news I believe (taken by Stephen J.)

Hi all, I didn't get the footage of that spout onto the news as its not good enough quality, I had to do a print screen whilst it was playing in winamp media player so I could show the image as I only have Still editing programs.

Thanx for showing everyone Jane laugh

I saw the spout(s) off Botany bay on the Sunday morning - very cool . First one was quite large and then subsequent ones smaller. Lots of funnel clouds as well during the 40 odd minutes that I was watching. I even got a few pics, but they were from a camera phone so not all that good. If someone can host them for me I will send them.
