BallotBox Webcams Live Images:    (•what am I looking at?)


Power was restored... and then it wasn't...
Regular image upload was working for a while, but the power got shut off again and when it came back on, the server didn't power up or didn't handshake properly with the cable modem, so automatic image updates to the web site are not happening... again. We are getting live action to our phones so Lynn and I can see the progress, but you guys can't... yet. We'll re-synch everything next time we're up, but until then we'll have to manually grab a snap from time to time off our phones and manually post them here. Tedious, so it won't be happening multiple times per day, or even every day... sorry!

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)
