Don't you just love it when you run smack-dab into a funnel cloud during rush hour?

The count of suspected tornadoes that rushed over Virginia (but not the University of Maryland!) yesterday is now up to three: Louisa, New Kent and Triangle, Va. Quite a busy day for weather.

That last possible twister was added to the Storm Prediction Center's list after alarmed drivers sent in a video of a funnel cloud just sort of sidling up to their vehicle on the highway. The person who uploaded it to YouTube wrote, "We were southbound on I-95 when we noticed the clouds acting funny - as it turns out, a tornado was brewing and touched down very close to us." Take a gander:

The web is dripping with extraordinary media from yesterday's severe weather. Take, for instance, this amazing structure beating the skies over what looks like a junkyard in New Kent:

And the National Weather Service might want to look into tornado reports near Fair Oaks Mall, because something definitely was spinning in the skies. Twitterer @masboo posted this photo she took while cruising down Rt. 50 by Waples Mill Rd., saying, "im still alive lol!!":
