Friday the 13th Funnel cloud

I was watching cloud rotation above me when I mentioned to my boss that I wanted to take a picture of a tornado. We walked to the front of our office in Lewistown, and he said, "There you go." I was not expecting to see the funnel cloud. Its not much of a funnel cloud, but it is the first one I have seen in real time.The photo was shot at 5:44 pm on Friday the 13th, 2010

I can say that there was rotation in the clouds directly overhead about 10 to 15 minutes befor I took the photo. As to whether there was rotation in the actual funnel cloud, I couldn't say. It was approx 1-1.5 miles south of my location in Lewistown.

Was this cloud spinning? A picture is always hard to tell by. But its not a funnel if it wasnt spinning, just scud. Curious as to if there was damage in the area? Being as you have the Time, location of the photo, and may know which way you were
