Hey, I think that it's not a cloud. It's steam from the Nuke plant in Palo. Been mistaken several times for clouds by other people. Just thought I would let everybody know.

I've seen similar to this happening befor. Its like theres a verticle cold spot and the moisture condenses just in that area making it look similar to a funnel. Theres no rotation in it, just clouds lifting.
