Image capture occurs 24 hrs a day, 7 days a week, every 2 minutes. If it's night, it'll be dark!

FYI: The back-aiming webcam will be off-line until construction is completed. It was mounted inside on the frame of the deck door, and that deck door will be replaced as part of the renovation, so off it came. It'll be back when all is done.

BallotBox1 Webcam Archives:

We've collected a webcam snap at noon (or as close to noon as we can) on just about every day for a while now. It's fun to look back day-by-day to see what each day was like! Have a look for yourself! (It assumes JavaScript has been activated on your computer)
