Hi everyone,
What does the sentence in bold mean?
From Stephen King's the Mist:
The silver veil<mist> was three-quarters of the way across the lake.
It had resolved itself into a crazily spinning teacup between the lowering black sky and the
surface of the water, which had gone the color of lead streaked with white chrome.
Thanks.

    There is a teacup-shaped (round, wider at the top than the bottom) cloud of mist that is spinning in a crazy manner - the swirling winds of the storm have turned the mist into something like a tiny tornado.
