Canal Cam Update!

Update 2/14/2019 - Camera seems OK for now.  I will defer an upgrade for a few weeks in order to keep testing its performance.

Update 2/11/2019 - 14:00 - I removed a thick layer of clear ice from the camera window.  Hopefully, it can maintain it's own now.

Update 2/11/2019 - 09:00 - I will be stopping down this afternoon to de-ice the camera -- we'll so how it goes.

Unfortunately, I think the internal heaters may have failed on the Cam Cam.  I will get down there this week and remove the ice, however, if the internal heaters have failed the ice will build back up fairly quickly.

If this is the case, I will have a fundraiser to replace and upgrade the camera and try and fix it for a backup with older camera parts.

The new/upgraded camera costs $1523 which I was thinking about doing later this year anyway.

The good thing is, Spring is right around the corner and I can replace the camera and have it operating quickly.
