Technical Difficulties: A New One, It Seems

Well, at least this wasn't the same old glitch.

The webcam was offline for an as-yet undetermined length of time this evening. Sorry about that! Apparently the webcam was bumped off the service I use.

Odd: but as long as it doesn't happen again, I won't worry.

Small Town America Neighborhood Streets, Yards: and now a Birdbath

My son and I set up a birdbath near the webcam, a few minutes ago. I trust that birds will find it.

Good Grief, Not Again?!

This time I think it's human error that kept the webcam offline for the last few hours.

Sorry about that!

For what it's worth, I've got what I assume is a cold. Or maybe allergies. Whatever the case, I'm definitely not running at 100% efficiency. Not even close.

I hope this will be the last service outage for a long, long time.

On the up side, between warm air, rain and sunshine: the grass is turning green.

Not Again!

Update (April 15, 2010)

I've got indirect evidence that the webcam was offline for about four or five hours, starting around 8:00 a.m. today (Central Time). Give or take an hour or so.

Which doesn't help a bit, if you stopped in this morning and saw - nothing on the feed.

Again, sorry about that.
So I oversleep (I've got a cold - I hope), check in at the computer: and get a 'Windows is Shutting Down' message. The iron idiot is apparently stuck in that mode.

No problem, I think: A simple reboot fixed it.

But this webcam has been offline for - it could be almost nine hours. Sorry About that!!

But it's back now: showing a beautiful, clear, blue-skied spring day in my part of Minnesota.

Good Grief, Now What?!

This webcam went offline for some reason, earlier today.

I didn't notice it until about a minute ago. Sorry about that!

It's back - to stay for quite a while, I hope.
