This update will not tell you that we have lost the ice but, you can now watch yourself (almost) live.
We are very relieved to tell you that our webcam has been fixed! Our tech friend, David, visited today and found the problem with the dropbox that hosts the photo from the webcam.
For those who have never seen the webcam's photos, go to the home page of this website, scroll to the bottom and there is a spot to click for a photo of the lake. It isn't live but almost as good as live, it updates ever 15-30 minutes.
You will find that the photo looks like the lake has thawed but several large icebergs remain. One is in disguise at about 11:00 as you look at the lake view. It appears as a dark shadow, that's because the ice is charcoal black. Another much larger mass is over toward the public launch, this is not visible on the webcam, it's blocked by the Shop. Then there is the route (not visible on the webcam) down toward the south end.
soon! very soon.
Oh - now that the webcam is working - many of you may not be watching the blog as intent
