This blog has been almost totally content-driven from the get-go. Here you go folks, look at the pretty webcam pictures! If you wanted any background information about the locations of the cams, for the most part people were out of luck! With the National Park Service cams, I supplied links to the parks' websites, where anyone could get all the info they wanted. Other cams were trickier. Milos and Mille Lacs has websites that give details about their respective locations, but what about the WU cams? I don't know anything more about the Parc de Chateau in France any more than you do. I know it's in France, and that's about it!
So now, I'm going to try something new: Each cam will come with a little background information, along with the Weathersticker. I'm also going to add an eighth cam in order to get a little better worldwide coverage.

Wish me luck!

Did you know that Cancun didn't even exist before 1970? Built on part of the world's second largest coral reef, the Mexican Government helped finance the first nine hotels. The cam is from the Beach Palace Resort, a very exclusive(and expensive) all-inclusive resort!

Good morning Ylee.

Enjoy the day.

Thanks, Sandi, I'll be OK! I'm almost ready for another 15 minute catnap! This week here promises to be really warm, too! Too warm for my comfort; to much likelyhood of severe stuff!

Rob, I'd love a couple of Benadryl right now, but I don't think I'd make it to the top of the hour!

Greetings Ylee!

Don't ask me...I don't know what I'm still doing up either, but I'm hoping a couple benadryl will do the trick. Brain won't shut down but eyes refusing to stay awake.

MORNING YLEE!!

Shouting in case you have nodded off!

I do hope you can get some sleep and catch up on the Zzzz-ed.
I agree with Linda, I also worry about you trying to work on such little sleep:(

I am awake after my allotted 6 to 7 hours, woken this morning by a blackbird singing. I got up, opened the blackout-blind and looked on the beautiful morning.... NOT ....it is thick fog!! LOL
We did have a wonderful day yesterday - in fact, the south coast resorts had a hotter day than many of the Mediterranean Islands - made it to 75!!
Take care :)

Alley, no coffee for me; I only drink an occasional vanilla cappuchino. I did get a 15 minute catnap about an hour ago. I'll probably get a couple of more as the night goes on. I'll probably take a Benadryl when I get home in the morning and sleep for about 8 hours. Then, if I don't get called in, I'll go back to bed about 11 tomorrow night, and sleep another 7-8 hours! Come Tuesday, I'll be back to my semi-perky self! :)

Wow, Shore, that's a lot of rain! A few more rounds like that, and you'll be almost caught up! After what happened last year, it has to be a relief!

Evening, Ylee,

Thought I'd find you here - or at least you're partly there! I worry about you when you're running on short sleep. I hope you're there for a normal shift and can go home and get some rest.

We ended up getting 4.27" rain, from Friday afternoon through about noon today. It was great - spaced out well enough that there was a chance for a lot to soak in. Whatever we're doing, it must be pleasing the rain gods. ;)

Have a good evening. It's time to go to bed myself and get ready for a work week I hope is nice and dry. It should be, at least for a few days. Early fog, maybe a shower. I can cope!

Good evening Ylee...thought I would drop by before I shut down the computer for the night. Not much on cams right now and lets hope the loss of some cams was only a temporary thing on here. Would truly be a bummer if they made it a permanent thing and like the others I question why??? I certainly did not see any porn on any of the ones I looked at. Not much on the television tonight so I guess I will go to bed early...can't get use to this time change yet...

Guess it will be busy at the coffee pot tonite for you since you mentioned only 2 hrs sleep. Not good if you have to put in another 11 hr shift...

I will be thinking of you dear one. Have a safe evening.

Ugh! They way things are working, I'll never get the new blog done! :( Between cleaning up last shift's mess, plus my own regular work, it took me an extra 45 minutes! Not easy on two hours' sleep!(Don't ask) Anyway, I hope ya'll had a nice Sunday!

Cal, are you saying you're off next Tuesday, or you have to work next Monday? My synapses aren't processing nuances! :)

Briar, thanks for posting the photo! I hope you're doing OK!

Shore, if the Gov't worked like WU....or is it if WU worked like the Gov't? Never mind, right now I can't tell much difference, lol!

ycd, no CME's and we'll be good to go!:)

63F Thursday, Tony? Good grief, you're going to have to wash up some shorts! :)

Hi Ylee, just stopping by to say hi! Weather here is really nice, but soon to turn back to winter. Or so they say, LOL! My dwarf nectarine is blooming so we took pvc to make a frame so I can put frost cloth over it and bird netting when it does get nectarines.

Got to go to work tomorrow :( off on Tuesday. Probably next week too.

Why in the world would they remove so many cams? That seems strange. Who knows what's behind it.

What is clear is that if you want "clear", hanging out with the pelican isn't the best choice. Sandi's slop has made its way east!

Good morning YLee.
I haven't installed the belt yet, it still sits on a table. By the looks of the forecast I'm not going to need it again this year. I may give it a try today and it will be ready for next season.
Yesterday I did a bit of drainage work and had the accumulated snow melt draining onto the street. With a forecasted high of 63F on thursday it won't be long untill it's all gone.
Enjoy the day.

Good morning Ylee. Sure is a bummer with this time change, now when I wake up I have to stay up...LOL Guess though as long as its still dark out in the AM, I can sneak in a couple more hours...

Have a great day dear one. Get some much needed rest then enjoy your time with the family.

Hi, Sandi! Milos is no doubt getting your "leftovers"! :)

BTW, have you ever checked out the other Milos cam?

WU losing over 2000 cams from their directory is more like passing a possum-sized hairball!

Hi Ylee - Happy "Summer-time Sunday" !!I
For the whole of two weeks we will be one hour nearer to each other!! lol

Yesterday I lost three of the photos in my header... but they are here again today. Possibly WU is having hiccoughs!

BTW - Looks like "thar's a storm brewing in Milos!

What the Heck! WU just removed over half the cams from their directory! They didn't shut down the cams uploading to WU, as the Thai cam above is still updating on the blog, but it's no longer on the WU cam directory! Not Happy!

Hopefully this is but a momentary setback!

Good evening! Nice and cool tonight, temps dropping down to the upper 30s; probably won't even frost!

Busy night tonight; I hope to get some traction on the new blog! We'll see!

Hi, Tony! I did have a good one today, hope you had one too!

GG, I'm glad you're getting some good rain! We could stand a break from it ourselves, we haven't been near drought conditions like you had!

Alley, I'm only working 11 hours tonight; bad thing is, I only get paid for 11 hours, lol!

Hi, Sandi! Well, the graphics in #172 I got from the National Park Service; I'm certainly not clever enough to make them!(It would be cool if I could, lol!)

ycd, if the Ohio river rose high enough to cover the road to the plant, I wouldn't be here, unless I was already here when they closed the road! Then it would be a blogging marathon! :)

Hi Ylee, this must be getting near the end of your work week too. This week I worked the full 12 and am really tired. Next week I'll keep using vacation and work a shorter shift because it's the "long" week.

Been cold and rainy but I can almost hear the ground hum a happy tune as it hydrates from the drought and spring flowers are pushing through.

Be safe and have a great day.

Good morning Ylee...yup its that time again. Well at least tomorrow it won't seem as bad as the clocks are turned ahead tonite. Smudgie is fed, enjoying her chicken this morning...she sure eats well with a can of wet food and a big helping of dry kibble. That should keep the crew going until tonite.

Think instead of making a coffee, I may head back to bed for a couple more hours. Have a great one.

Hi Ylee - The ship is in dock in Cancun and it is a "grey day" in Milos!
Like the post #172 about why there are lights in the mountains. Clever!

The thing Ylee for me getting up at 5:30 is just silly, after all, I don't have to get ready to go to work as I have been retired since 2005. It just makes for a long day and I would rather sleep through till 7 AM like normal folks and not need a nap during the day to keep me from falling flat on my face....LOL Catching a few hours sleep at a time is not as restful as one good full sleep.

Cooler here today with spurts of sunshine in an otherwise cloudy sky. I see by Sunday we will be back up to 60...Oh Yes!!!!! that's more like it.

Have a wonderful afternoon dear one.

Totally wet here this morning and our 7 day forecast is solid rain. No lows to make it snow, T'anks God.
Tloml and her sister are going off somewhere (they don't always agree and they rarely tell me anything) in the little RV. What'd ya bet they find some sun somewhere on this island?
Dang! I did not button the cover on the tools in the pickup last night - oh well - most of the tools I use are in the building I'm working on.

Yesterday I spent most of the day catching up on the blogs; today I'll start working on the next blog!

ycd, I think the Devil knew better than to go to Austin, lol!

Good mornng Alley, I think you're getting the same effects of the high pressure as we are, and that's a good thing! You know, if you don't do anything except move the clock forward one hour, you'll be getting up at 5:30!

Good morning Ylee. Friday has finally arrived, cooler but with sunshine and a much calmer breeze. Looks like its going to be one of those days. Woke up at 4:30, had my shower and was dressed by 5 AM and nowhere to go...LOL Fed a happy little Miss Smudgie her breakfast and now she is off in her warm bed sleeping away her full tummy. With the time change this wknd, going to have to start going to bed earlier...

Have yourself a safe and quiet day dear one. Rest well.

Good morning Ylee. Never thought about Easter Egg hiding....LOL Don't have to worry about that here anymore. Kids are all too big for that stuff. The Easter bunny retired his ears and fluffy tail a long time ago...LOL

I do however love to buy those solid chocolate bunnies...yum yum, the one and only time I must say I really enjoy eating excessive chocolate.... I usually buy a bunch of them at a dollar each and throw them in the freezer...When I want to drizzle chocolate over something I take one out, melt it in the microwave and use that. Its also great breaking off a small piece and putting it in your cup of coffee and letting it melt slowly....yum

Anyway, have a great day. I am sitting here watching it rain but I see the wind is calming a bit. Now that is a good thing.

Good morning! Soggy, soggy, Thursday here. It's supposed to rain most of the day, and into the evening. Weatherwise, this spring is shaping up to be similar to last year; wet!

New blog this week! We'll see how busy it is here before I can nail down a time when I'll get it done!

Yup, we have to go to work and pay for our hobbies, ycd! :)

Hi, Sandi, too warm for snow here; it was 74 yesterday, 64 when I got up for work this morning! Lets see if I can make the Cancun ship "sail" in the next couple of days!

Shore, I've sen "moon over Milos" many times; thanks for saving it!

Trauma, if the moon started blinking, I'd get worried, lol!

Alley, I didn't get any yardwork done yesterday either! Normally, we don't mow or trim until after Easter, as family comes over with little ones, and the tall grass gives more places to hide eggs!

The "cruise ship" is still docked at Cancun. Funny: on the "Great Forest" cam you can see only at night there that the valley below is well lit and we gotta assume populated. During the daylight there I'd swear there were no streetlights nor towns in the picture so far.

Good morning Ylee, finally got my lazy old butt out of bed for the second time. Have already done some of my morning chores and cleaning. Vacuuming is always so much fun. Now comes the dustmop over the hardwoods, but first I need a coffee and will go and grab the mail before it blows away. What a wind out there again...No yardwork today. Just too windy. Oh well.

Hope you are home having a nice rest now after your long night. Catch ya later dear one.

Good Morning Ylee:
This appeared on my local weather this morning:
Wind : SW 37km/h
Wind gusts : 119km/
Actual wind is about 5km.
Just had to share that.
I had to go back to work too 'cause when I'm off other projects still cost money.

Well, I had about an hour and a half of downtime earlier in the night, and instead of blogging, I decided to take a nap, as I was pooped already when I arrived at work after a long day prepping power equipment for the upcoming lawn and garden season!

Gee, where do I start? :)

Tony, so far I had a pretty good time, as I was very busy around the house doing projects. It's a good thing I came to work tonight, as I had to pay for the stuff I bought while I was off, lol!

Alley, we're getting great weather too, temps are supposed to make it up to 70 today! Another thing we have in common is spoiled kitties! :)

Hi Red, I haven't checked what Thursday will bring, but it's going to be warm here today, and that's always a reason to be on the lookout for severe stuff! Hopefully it won't get as bad as last year.

Pros, thanks for filling in the info on Mt. Civetta! The Italians have a wonderful way of naming things like towns and mountains!

GG, the nice weather is getting me in the mood for gardening! Too bad it's still too cold and wet here to start!

ycd, good workers are hard to find, no matter what position they work! They want to live the life of leisure at work as if they were at home!

Briar, I have APOD RSS'd at home! I also liked the auroras that were in the video!

Trauma, Milos is as beautiful at night as it is in the daytime! Maybe you could take your wife on a walk on the beach there sometime!

Sandi, I'm so glad you are getting lots of rain! Maybe your hedge will make it, after all! :)

Reno, Shore, I think that underground root cellars were fairly common in the midwest 100 years ago. It provided a cool place where people could store potatoes and such for months without spoilage, and it had the added benefit of providing protection from storms.

Shore, glad you recovered from your ordeal!

Sandi, I bet there were millions of those air-raid bunkers in Britain during the war!

Doublecheck and make sure I got everybody....yep! :) Now on to the other blogs!
