Funnel Cloud Spotted Over L.A.

Your East Coast and Midwest friends are freezing their faces off, but hey, we have some weird weather here too: lo and behold, a cute little funnel cloud was spotted over West L.A. today.

Blogger and attorney Joel Pollak caught it on video from Culver City and explained the weather phenomenon too. Some funnel clouds result in tornadoes, but long story short, it doesn't seem like your Bill Paxton-Helen Hunt Twister fantasies are coming true today. Honestly, it's really just making us want funnel cake. Or maybe a nice crepe. Anybody wanna get brunch?
