It's like a tornado but were a tornado touches the ground a funnel cloud doesn't.

There was some really dark clouds in the sky at the time I saw it and it must of been about 10 minutes after I heard a huge rumble of thunder.

Blow! Missed it. Got the black clouds and clap of thunder then went into hibernation. Never seen one, what a shame.
