Ash Street: Visible Again

I got home from an out-of-town trip after sunset Sunday night. The trailer that the construction crew has had parked north of our house for weeks may have been gone then.

It was definitely not in place Monday morning.

Can't say that I miss the thing: It was blocking the webcam's view of Ash Street, and the work that's been going on there.

They seem to be pouring the curbs today.

I saw a hummingbird at the feeder around suppertime today. I alerted the household, so this time they were able to see the little green spot, too.

The way the little creature sat, probing around at one station, then hovered over to the next and repeated the process, makes me wonder if the hummingbird was after the sugar water, the ants that get into the sugar water, or maybe both. #1 daughter suggested that the feeder was providing a sort of main-course-and-desert service.

Unhappily, something seems to have happened to the webcam around 11:30 this morning - so we're the only ones who saw the hummingbird. I've got the thing online again - and will be trying to figure out what happened tomorrow.

Software Problems: Sorry!

Sorry about that blank picture!

I'm having what I hope are temporary problems with my webcam software.

Thank you for your patience: I am working on a solution.

Independence Day, 2008

You can't hear it, but there pop and crackle of fireworks is in the air.

Which is notable, since that sort of thing is illegal here in Minnesota.

Me? I haven't set off a firecracker in years, but I don't mind people who do. Pulling bottle rockets and assorted scrap out of the yard is a minor annoyance: but it's worth it, to hear the sounds of the Fourth of July, as I remember it, back in the day.
