SoftJazz is on a distinguished road
We get them here on Lake Erie & I've seen several at the same time. Last ones I saw was about a month ago (there were four of them sighted all total) & I decided, with the weather report & water conditions being what they were, to not go out sailing.

Best advice I can give you is to start learning to watch clouds. They tend to come from specific types of clouds & after a while, you just learn that "that doesn't look right". That last time I saw them, I was heading south toward the marina, kept watching that cloud formation & said that it looked like waterspout clouds. Maybe 20 minutes later, there they were.
