Re: Waterspout experience?
We experienced one when I was young brushed past us within half a mile, crazy loud, and wet!... reading up about them because I had heard both.
But apparently there are tornadic ones, and non-tornadic ones, with the latter being more common, and usually EF0 or less on the scale... had to be what we saw...
I don't think I'd want to be anywhere near a tornadic one.
Actually I like the plan of heading towards one to avoid them. I doubt you'd have a snowball's chance outrunning it, going towards them would allow you to steer clear once the path is obvious, but either way it'd be quite a ride.
