Webcam leaves us in the dark

webcam.jpgRegular Webcam viewers might find it surprising that I don’t look at our Webcam page every day. I know, it would be such a quick addition to my daily duties, but honestly, I just forget (plus, I get an in-person view of the bay on my daily commute). My job involves so many things, all which I must fit into less than 40 hours per week, that my relatively low-priority Webcam duties often suffer as a result. For this I apologize, and remind our viewers that I really do count on you to know when the camera is down. Leave a comment on the latest blog post here, or send me an e-mail at webmaster@record-eagle.com.

With that out of the way… Yes, it appears the camera has been down for several days, leaving us, literally, in the dark.

Of course this coincides with an Arctic blast of cold weather (read today’s weather story for the sad details »), so I’m not very eager to climb up on the roof and reboot the camera. Here’s to hoping the camera comes back by itself, which it most often does. If it’s still down by the time temperatures climb back to human-friendly levels (early next week, I think), I’ll make the frosty climb to reboot the camera.

Thanks again for your patience.

    I would not want to climb up there in the cold either.
    I guess we will just have to wait.

    i look at the webcam every day, but usually go to the maritime academy cam because its interactive,most of the time the other one is out of focus….im in Daytona Beach fl. now and like to see the snowfall on the bay, and to look out over the peninsula.i look forward to returning in the summer as there is no better place than Traverse City in the summer.

    Well the weather seems to have climbed out of the frigid range so perhaps Jeanne can fix the webcam? I bet she has a full plate but that webcam is appreciated. Perhaps we out of town viewers should e-mail the editor about how much we love the webcam? Or put a counter on it? Anyway, I look forward to its return.

    Nice sunny day in TC and the webcam has been down since Tues. You've gotta know. But if not, here you go. Thanks for the service.

    Our web cam is like the market “down again”. Us old TCers need our daily fix. Couldn't we all kick in for a better model, that bird cam (cheep cheep) needs an update.
