If you have a job in which you arrive at the beginning of your shift and then go to a desk area with a computer what do you do? Get up and fix yourself some coffee? Make some conversation with your office-mates? Jump online and go directly to the Weather Channel’s webcam site?
If you are my spouse you skip the coffee and the office mates and go straight to the Ontario webcams. He told me this last night as we were walking our dog and I knew to respond with “Why? Are you looking for signs of spring?” To which he replied yes, then ticked off a number of benchmarks like the hole in the ice on Head Lake in Haliburton is bigger but he OTOH, sees very little change from the winter scenery on Lake Muscoka.
Of course what we are both intested in is what Maple Lake looks like but we have to wait until we get there to really know. It would be fun to watch spring unfold not near Maple Lake as I’m doing here but actually on the Lake which is my plan from this year and beyond. I’ve made that choice as a solid one after going through today and viewing every single Ontraio webcam resource that is made public online and finding that 90% of them are non-functional/too fuzzy to see anything/being battered about so much that a non-blurry screen shot is impossible ( Niagara Falls). Still, the Weather Channel’s webcam link is your best best to find the most webcams that are operating in some fashion so I continue to rely on them–and am thankful for their availability.
