Welcome to My World - of Webcams! (Well, maybe a little bit of it!)

Good evening, friends and lurkers!
I pulled the McMurdo cam; it was covered in snow. I replaced with the cam from Palmer Station in Antarctica.
It doesn't have the detail of McMurdo, but at this time of the year it's on most, if not all the time!
I also pulled the Purchase Knob cam(Everything's still brown), and replaced it with the Point Reyes National Seashore cam. A nice beach scene, if the fog's not in!

I'm going on vacation later this week, so I'm doubting that I'm going to change this blog anymore until I get back.

Ya'll take care!

From the "backbone" of the U.S.! The Continental Divide Webcam, from Rocky Mountain National Park!



Tired of snow and cold? Here is a nice view of the beach at the city of Napier in New Zealand.
NOTE:The camera changes view every few hours...
there are three different beach scenes, a mountain scene, and a downtown scene.
Overall, Napier seems to be a nice place to visit!

Greetings From Tywhoppity Bottoms!!!

By: Ylee, 9:59 AM GMT on February 05, 2011

Tywhoppity Bottoms isn't some place you can find on Google Maps, or Wikipedia. It does exist, however, and it borders our farm. Tywhoppity Bottoms is a small area of bottomland that surrounds Blackford Creek, which creates part of the county line that divides Daviess and Hancock counties in western Kentucky. According to legend, Tywhoppity was given its name by Union soldiers during the Civil War, who remarked the sound of the creek against the rocks made a ty-whop-it-ty sound.

I blog from work. I have an ancient computer with old software,(IE 6.0, anyone?) and the nice IT guy has restricted my internet access to .gov and .mil websites, and of course, WU (IT guy must be a fan! :D). So, what do I do during downtime at work? (Besides goofing around at WU?)

Seeing the world through webcams! There are literally thousands of government webcams, from Atqasuk, Alaska, to the South Pole. Australia and New Zealand also have .gov in their domains, so I can peek into their worlds, too!

Once I can figure out how to use the html tags, I'll show a few of my favorites, as well as have links to others of interest.

You can discuss anything you like; you don't have to be on topic. Please show some respect for your fellow bloggers.
Thanks!

A webcam I only discovered this week!

Think YOU'VE had a lot of snow this winter? Check out the parking lot at Crater Lake National Park!

BTW, go to the parks' website and see what they had to do to get the main webcam online!
