we might have a tornado to so dont be scared


Not sure if you're interested, and perhaps someone else has stated this, but those are not funnel clouds. This is a scattered layer of altocumulus clouds that have some virga underneath them. Virga is precipitation falling from a cloud that evaporates before reaching the ground. The midlevel atmospheric winds give the virga its wispy appearance. They are not rotating.
A funnel cloud is a rotating column projecting out of the bottom of a thunderstorm and is affiliated with an extremely violent storm. Funnels are not associated with scattered layers of fair-weather clouds.
I wasn't sure if you were using "funnel clouds" literally or figuratively.
