Waterspouts are usually associated with warm, tropical water and the lower latitudes. This one on Sebago Lake, Maine occurred at 43 degrees north lattitude. Actually, it's not clear whether or not this was a waterspout or a small tornado (F0 or F1) descending from the angry sky -- on the afternoon of August 10, 2004. Nonetheless, it's quite rare to observe a funnel cloud of any kind in the far northeastern U.S.
