The Spider Wars Continues

Update 7/30 - webs and spiders, along with hundreds of little ones, have moved on for now. They will probably be back before long.


The camera spiders are proving to be very tough this year.  My last attempt included repellent and moth balls which worked a bit.  My next visit will include  a highly recommended spider control formula.

Wisconsin Point Cam failed

Update 7/6/2020 - 10:00
Good news and bad news about Wisconsin Point Camera.
Bad, there is a primary power outage on the circuit that feed the camera and lights along the canal.

The good news it that there probably isn't anything wrong with the camera and antenna system.

The outage has been reported to the Corps of Engineers and we have to wait for the fix.
