Going into this summer I hope to keep all eleven cameras up and running smoothly.
Camera Status: All online as of this morning.
Camera Operations: The cams need constant babysitting, and while I do have some outside obligations, I hope to be available to make adjustments, clean the glass, remove spiders, and make repairs after storms daily.
The quality and stability of each camera stream depend a lot on the lighting of the scene and the reliability of the internet connections - this is all variable and doesn't mean your device is bad, just that the stream at that time may be bogging down. Not a perfect system, but, hopefully, gets better over time and is good enough to at least get a view.
New locations: None planned at this time.
Funding: If nothing major breaks, we should have enough funds to make it to our October fundraiser.
Tall Ships Duluth August 11-13
Wednesday Night Sailboat Regatta's
Weather forecast: The long-range forecast is for a normal weather pattern with temps in the 60-70's and often cooler by the lake. Lake Superior water levels are high meaning the occasional storms will probably be more severe than usual.
Boat Traffic: Looks to be a busy shipping season with large amounts of steel pellets and grain going out and plenty of limestone and other cargo coming in.
Recordings: I try and post at least one boat, weather, or sunrise recording each day and probably more.
Jeffery the Gull: Jeffery is back and will be visiting on occasion.
Summary: I just hope that visiting these little windows to the world makes your day a bit better and gives you a relaxing glimpse into this neck of the woods.
I appreciate all the kind remarks, financial help, and constructive criticism.
Have a great day!
