      This is to pass along the interesting tale of "Cutting the waterspout".

      When a waterspout or whirlwind was seen, a cross was made in the air, and it was said to disperse the waterspout immediately. I talked with a reputable gentleman who said he had seen this work as a child. .
      The following link expands on this legend...

      The Weck Stone Tablet was also drawn with a waterspout at the center.
      For those not familiar with the waterspout, it can be seen here:
