Chugwater Sequence 4

That moat of occlusion-downdraft air fully encircled the tornado by this time; and I thought it indeed was spinning away its final wisps. Condensation began to "lift" from beneath--actually some combination of air being too dry and/or too high in pressure for cloud material to condense. As any tornado scientist could assure with high confidence, the tornado vortex still was there, whatever might not have been visible. This is critical in considering a ridiculous claim I'll note in the next page...
