Incy Wincy Spider climbed up the water spout…

I was watching the weather after the 3 news this evening and they showed an image of a water spout over the Manukau Harbour.  Here is the view we had of it as it developed and then petered out.  It was very slow, in the order of many minutes but it revolved slowly and was quite fascinating.  OK, so it’s not like something from Hurricane Alley, but, for  Wednesday night, it was still pretty cool and I wouldn’t want to be close to a really big water spout or a developing tornado – it would be a scary, scary thing indeed.
