We just spent some time in our tornado shelter, as one slowly passed 2-3 miles north of us. I got the wife and dogs into the shelter, then spent some time watching the monster. It started out as a thick column, slowly changed to a funnel, then a rope, then dissipated. I even got a few shots with my flip-phone---the first I've taken since getting the thing two years ago. This was an unusual tornado, as the storm cell travelled in a SSW direction. They usually come from the SW and travel to the NE.
