I had no clue what I was seeing. This was taken looking ESE above my house. After some research I think this is a Mammatus cloud - a funnel with a spinning base?

" In the United States, sky gazers may be most familiar with the very distinct and more common cumulonimbus mammatus. When occurring in cumulonimbus, mammatus are often indicative of a particularly strong storm or maybe even a tornadic storm. Due to the intensely sheared environment in which mammatus form, aviators are strongly cautioned to avoid cumulonimbus with mammatus." from

There was a tornado alert in the southern part of our county. 7:30 PM 5-26-2011

    That is a scary sky. I have seen tornado clouds that just rolled in the front. They are so scary. Great shot Gloria!!

    This looks very ominous! Tornadoes are perhaps the most scary of storms. Great capture, Gloria!
