State of the Harbor Cams 03/15/2022

 As we enter a new season with fifteen cameras to view, my hope is that everyone will be able to have a window to the harbor that is better than ever.  My plan is to upgrade each camera every five years which means an upgrade of three cameras a year. 

In 2022, we have replaced the Wisconsin Point Cam (still waiting for power to be restored) and installed the AMI Connors Point Cam.  I plan on upgrading two more cameras this year, the Great Lakes Aquarium cam (GLA) and Two Harbors Depot as these are now the oldest on the system.  GLA cam is scheduled for June and Two Harbors after that.

Of course, there will always be breakdowns and failures, but, with the 5-year upgrade cycle, I hope to stay ahead of most unplanned trouble.

Enjoy the 2022 Season!
