Thanks, Steve, and all at NCTC.
I'll go back and tell the others.

magpie said...

To All:
Steve reports that "until the new equipment is installed, the power continues to go down in the wee hours of the morning...."

so he knows we are down....

(Back to the pillows for me)

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Thanks magpie, you were up late and up early. Better head back to bed or, if you are like me, you will not be worth much today.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

At least there is hope for our cams, they are working on a solution. That is a good thing.

magpie said...

Righto, Sissy!

Good to "see" you, hope you and that ankle reach a friendly agreement.

Insomnia rules here, so back to try again...

Rain,rain,rain...yuck...making my work difficult- checking the radar- looks like a slight break in the showers, off to cut some wet greens...
Hello all:) have a great day! Here's a song- Snoopy vs. the Red Baron

ceil said...

Good morning all. I have been under the weather stomach virus doctor says.
Paula hope that your mom feels better soon.
Lynn hope you are on the mend.
Sissy get another opinion. It might be broke.
Margy hope you can get some nice rest.

ceil said...

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE...
I'm late getting on here...Capt. Eagle was up and at 'em early and beat me to the 'puter (will wonders ever cease?!) Appears I didn't miss a visit from our eagles.
CEIL, I have been wondering about you...haven't heard from you in a while. Tummy ailments are a pain (oh, did I say that?):(
MARGY, get some sleep!

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' & GET WELL WISHES CEIL HEDGIE!!---NITEY NITE MARGY!!

Costume Lady said...

Good Morning to you, Megan and Norma.

normabyrd said...

SISSY!!!----I have a GREAT IDEA!!----when your ankle heals!!!---We will head to ATLANTA ZOO & PICKET to keep 'PRINCE XI' on display every day!!---We will need to organize---shouldn't be too hard!! ----The WORLD LOVES HIM!!!

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' HELEN!!---Hope you aren't feeling 'icky' too!!!---

wvgal_dana said...

Thank you for the new thread and the heads up.

Great wedding pic Loretta and Lolly.

See there are a few eagle cams we
might not be seeing. Others we'll have to wait for their new links.

WELCOME HOME LYNN !! GET WELL SOON !

Sorry Paula for your Mother's setback. So glad she is getting IV fluids.
Prayers continue for your Mother and you.

Jo such good news about Sgt. Ryan and now Sgt Patrick on his way HOME ! I know you have a big smile on and a nice warm feeling
in your heart. ( :

Sharon it sounds like you had a wonderful day out. How proud I know you felt. Still take it easy.

Sissy maybe a different doctors opinion is needed about your foot.

Ceil prayers for stomach flu.

Praises for Donna with continued prayer for Tonja.

Prayers for those who have prayer needs.

I did go to pool on Wed. but did NOT exercise much at all. Mainly just did slight lifting of each leg and walked in the water some.
I had a procedure on Tuesday where they went in and burnt a nerve in my back. The water felt good just to be in it. Slowly doing One Day At A Time...

Now I'm caught up on all the comments. Boo !
About the cam for Boy Luney or new name Xi Lan (Atlanta's Beauty). Just when he was moving around more. Darn wanted to see him
walking. Well they say there will be video's not the same but at least maybe we will see him walk. Boo! Sissy if you go to Atlanta.
You have to keep that foot propped up. With that up, a pair of sunglasses on, a cane beside you, and the money can. Surely you
would raise enough money to keep the cam going.

normabyrd said...

BWO looks eeeeerrie this morning!!!!

normabyrd said...

MEGAN!!----Watching SNOOPY & THE RED BARON----is like a shot in the arm!---ho!----

Costume Lady said...

Margy mentioned that earlier abuot BWO looking eerie, Norma...so I just had a look see and it looks like Halloween there; ghostly.

Mits said...

UPDATE FROM HUMMER NEST.......

[The eggs were laid: October 29 & 31, 2008 ... Hatched: November 15 & 16, 2008... Fledged: December 10, 2008]

Red said...

Good morning everyone. Another rainy day here too. We had 4 inches of rain Tuesday night and today we may get 3 more. Also snow in the forcast. Snowing in Louisiana already. If we get 3 flakes everything will be closed. lol

normabyrd said...

DANA---Thanks for the update!!---I will keep you in my thoughts & prayers that your back feels much better!!---Taking it easy -- one day at a time---sounds good!!----

Mits said...

2 moose and a buck on moosecam

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' RED!!---your weather forecast sounds like ours here in WV!!----People were buying groceries like crazy yesterday!!---waiting for the SNOW today!!--Those forecasts certainly help our food markets here!!--ho!---How often do you folks get snow?

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Norma, I will drive us down there. Isn't that just the pits!!!??? I am so attached to that bear, the thought of 10-5 M-F was killing me. I am just at odds over the whole thing. Oh well, IT IS WHAT IT IS!! BUT...I do not have to like it, might have to accept it but don't have to like it.

My foot is still really swollen and bruised. Everybody is saying it isn't broke, so I don't know. I have an appointment with an orthopedist next week. Maybe then I can get started on something to help. Thanks for all the concern. In the world of big deals, my ankle ain't one today!!

Red said...

We get a few dustings normally. Occassionally we get some accumalation. Snow happens here but just not very often. Not very much at all in recent years.

normabyrd said...

A bit WINDY in ME!!---Not as bad as it was yesterday am!!---Wish we could see more of that area!!---Looks beautiful!!

normabyrd said...

SISSY!---I had a sprained ankle once & I could FEEL your PAIN!---Remembered it took a while -- and it was not pleasant!!-- ho!--

normabyrd said...

RED!!---we haven't had as much snow the past year or so!!---I live on a hill---when I was working---used to worry so about it!!---

Red said...

Crow in Me nest looking for leftovers.

normabyrd said...

BWO---EAGLE!!!----Still eerry there!!

Red said...

I think thats raindrops on the lens at BWO

Red said...

I think since its so dark and gloomy here, I'll just take an early nap. Can't even see out the windows right now. I'll BBL!

paula eagleholic said...

Morning, all.

Sorry you got the bug, too, Ceil.
Hate those stomach thingys.

paula eagleholic said...

Might be a couple of days before our cam comes up again..think we need some sun!!

Mits said...

EAGLE at PH

Mits said...

yes it is raining in Cambridge, Maryland at BWO

deb said...

Good morning, everyone. We have had a dusting of snow so far today, more predicted for this afternoon.

Mits said...

eagle at Caltran

paula eagleholic said...

Nice pics, Deb.

Mits said...

poof at Caltran

Mits said...

Mits said...

poor eagle at BWO is soaked

floralgirl said...

I feel his pain...

Mits said...

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' PAULA & DEB!!---PAULA---keeping your MOTHER in my thoughts & prayers!!-----I see RED decided to take a nap---just wanted to tell him---CNN is showing snow in New Orleans!!---ho!----

deb said...

LIVE FEED is up. Still cam is not, though.

Mits said...

thanks, Deb, hope the new equipment comes soon

paula eagleholic said...

Thanks for the heads up Deb. That's a nice change! I even have some color on mine today...

movin said...



***gOOD MORNING***

***EVERYoNE***


If the Hummingbird nest is empty, what can we deduce, boys and girls??

....missed it altogether yesterday.

Looks like you guys might be getting some rain. Am I right?

Happy Thursday.



C(°ٿ°)D

Jim

paula eagleholic said...

I wonder if that has to do w/ the new card they put in yesterday?

normabyrd said...

DEB!!---Just viewed your photos!!
No words to describe how GREAT I think they are!!---You truly have an EAGLE EYE!!---Can't imagine seeing that many EAGLES at one time!!!---THANKS FOR SHARING-----

paula eagleholic said...

In fact, I would have to say the color on the live feed is fantastic!

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' MOVIN'JIM!!---Yeah!---We have rain this am---

WARNING ON WEATHER----WINTER ADVISORY UNTIL 7:15 pm est today!!---covers all the counties in our area---but not the eastern panhandle!!

normabyrd said...

WOW!--My first glimpse of 'LITTLE PRINCE XI' this am!!---Maybe we should call him 'THE SLEEPING PRINCE'----ho!----Want to see him walking before there turn off the cam!!!!!!

deb said...

I have color, too! How cool is that! I hope we get a visit soon. Mary and I are going in search of the Great Horned Owl we saw the other day. This time we want pictures of it.

Norma, there are so many eagles this year, it is wonderful. Even the Rangers are excited at how many there are.

wvgal_dana said...

Thanks Deb have live feed up. Nice ( :

Anyone able to get the "click on" to play the music that Lolly sent around? I must be doing something wrong. I find song type it in and nothing??

Mits said...

yes, Deb, looks like you hit the eagle jackpot:)

normabyrd said...

ENJOY your day DEB! Please tell MARY--I loved her pics too!!---

deb said...

I got it to work, but it took a couple tries, Dana. Now I don't remember what it took to get it to go, though.

deb said...

I will, Norma. We aren't leaving for awhile yet, so hurry up eagles and visit the nest in color!

wvgal_dana said...

Thanks Deb I'll keep working at it.

deb said...

Dana, what song are you searching for? I just tried it again and it worked right away.

Costume Lady said...

Deb, loved your photo of the geese in formation with gold color all around. I have a project for you. If you looked at Gene's photos, there was one of snowflakes on his rifle butt. Beautiful little things that they are, couldn't get them blown up enough to really see their beauty. You have a camera that will magnify very nicely, so I thought you might get a black or dark piece of paper and catch and photograph the snowflakes, just as soon as it hits the paper. I think we would all love to see the results. I think your photos are tops, so this one will be beautiful.

Costume Lady said...

WHEN YOU HAVE TIME:) :)

deb said...

I'll try that, Wanda. I thought the rifle picture was great!

Costume Lady said...

WAKE UP RED! You need to go to the store and stock up on munchies if it is going to snow there! If you have never had MUNCHIES WITHDRAWL, you don't want to experience it. It is not a pretty sight:):)

Costume Lady said...

Oh, thank you, Deb. Looking forward to it!

glo said...

Nice pictures again Deb Thanks for sharing.
Pulled up the live feed as soon as I returned from my own daily eagle adventure. I am not sure if its color or not so maybe i missed it. Got some sporadic sound.

Costume Lady said...

Sissy, forgive me for scolding you, but I think you are on your feet too much. If those people say your ankle isn't broken, then the swelling almost has to be from standing on it too much. Prop up and let Tom take care of you. I hope he feels well enough to do that. Get lots of Marie Callendar's Dinners and let Tom microwave you dinner along with a can of fruit.

Costume Lady said...

DON'T MICROWAVE THE CAN OF FRUIT, TOM!!

Mits said...

yes Wanda, you had to remind him of that...poor Ceil sent her husband to store to get 4 yellow bananas, so it might settle her stomach, he came back with a whole hand of green bananas, she said she didn't think she would last that long for them to ripen....

Mits said...

no offense, guys, but sometimes you all just don't listen:)

Mits said...

must be my eyes, I don't see much difference in the cam color, but when it is on, the clarity is sharper.

Costume Lady said...

WE HAVE SOUND!

Costume Lady said...

WE HAVE STATIC!

magpie said...

Guess it is just the color of December in West Virginia, MITS - I don't see much either but I do believe it is "in color." ☺

Costume Lady said...

:(:(:(

Mits said...

yes, Margy, I agree:)

deb said...

My sound just came on, anyone else?

magpie said...

Now if we would see a few cars go by, some red vehicles perhaps, it might look more vibrant...

Mits said...

sound sounds like a spitting camel..

deb said...

Never mind, I see the answer.

magpie said...

Sissy!
Next week is too long to wait to get to an orthopedist...!

We're not going to let you get away this indecision on the part of your doctors! How many Momsters do you want to show up on your doorstep ???? xoxo ♥

Mits said...

maybe Steve will go out and stand below in a Santa Hat:)

Costume Lady said...

Helen, Gene did that to me once. We were have company for dinner and I need 2 ripe bananas for fruit salad. He brought home about 6 green as grass bananas. I don't think he will do that again ;)

magpie said...

Still looks like the Twilight Zone at BWO - what is all that debris in the nest? Looks like a bunch of feathery things or fish leftovers...although I figure it is all illusion due to the weather....

magpie said...

MITS - I can't say I have ever heard a spitting camel, that's a good one ! Is this from your Zoo Experiences ? ☺

Costume Lady said...

How about if I send Gene down there in a Santa Suit, have him stand there near the tree and ring a bell, along side a kettle and we can send the money to Atlanta?

magpie said...

Costume Lady!
You are one step ahead of me, but I was going to suggest that you both go down there ! ☺

Costume Lady said...

Margy, there is nothing wrong with BWO nest...you need more sleep:)

magpie said...

But, the ultimate treat would be to see an Eagle or Two, and then we would see yellow and orange I guess on beaks and talons....
ESP Eagles, come on !

Mits said...

good idea, Wanda....Margy, had a camel do the spitting thing a long time ago, it was gross...stay away from those big guys.

magpie said...

Wanda, I get the distinct feeling you are messing with my mind! ☺
but you are so right, I would like to get this sleep thing straightened out... :(
Think it would mean deleting some of the caffeine out of my system, and getting on a regular work schedule.... :(

paula eagleholic said...

It is winter colors...but I do see green grass, dark brown sticks and some light brown grass in the middle of the nest...

deb said...

I am off, hope you all get a visit soon!

magpie said...

I hear Eagles in Maine....
they are about due to make a visit...

magpie said...

Paula
What is the latest on your mother?

magpie said...

Get well wishes for Ceil and Lynn... - you might be a step ahead of the rest of us, getting your illnesses out of the way before the Holidays...and that trip to Oregon, Ceil.

xo ♥

Lolly said...

Good morning all. Well, it is still morning here. Won't be on today...party tonight, but wanted to say HI to everyone!

Sissy, take care of that ankle. My wrists still hurt when I turn them the wrong way. Still wearing wrist supports, but have to take them off to do some things.

We have finally had a freeze here and all plants look dismal, but we have bright sunshine. Send the moisture our way, please!

Red, know what you mean. We have three snow flakes and everything shuts down and it is BIG on the news. But, it is best if things shut down. Folks here do not know how to drive on snow and ice! Yikes!

Wish all of you could drop in for a cup of cheer! House is sparkling clean and decorated! Happy Day to all....BBL after the party!

magpie said...

Thanks, Lolly - have fun - wish we could drop in...☺

Red said...

How can a man sleep with all this chattering going on? lol Gosh it's snowing in New Orleans. Last time I remember it snowing in New Orleans we got 17 inches here.

Mema Jo said...

Good Afternoon - Yepper it sure does sound like a spitting camel!

Really getting steady rain here in the valley. I sure pray everyone of you that doesn't feel well will soon feel better

Final inside Christmas decorations are being done today. I will be back on later.....

magpie said...

Sounds like something pretty close to the microphone at NCTC - maybe an Eagle, eating....

Mits said...

2 eagles BWO

magpie said...

And the Eagles are BWO - one is chomping down on something..

magpie said...

or I guess it could just be rain drops... :(

magpie said...

Time to head back to the pillows.
TTFN ☺

magpie said...

Forget that: Eagle at LW with food !

normabyrd said...

AFTERNOON KIDS!!---I keep waiting---I don't have a COLORED nest!!---Wonder where BELLE & LIBERTY are hiding!!!----

magpie said...

Hi Norma! Do you think it is just the bland colors of a WV December day?

normabyrd said...

HEY HELEN!---I'm on your side---CAMELS do SPIT!!!---BIG TIME!!---not a nice polite spit either!!---ho!

hedgie said...

Hi gang!
So many interesting comments today.
I saw the snow in New Orleans on the news, and wondered if Red was going to be next! Also heard that there was snow in Houstin!
Paula, so sorry to hear that your mom has taken another turn...praying that they find the problem and a cure quickly. Ceil, get well quick--you have a trip to get ready for!! Dana, sorry your back is still causing pain. Margie, try half/half caffeinated/decaf and see if that helps any!! You really do need more sleep!
Sissy, sprains CAN be worse than fractures, but some fractures don't show up for 10-14 days, so it really should be re-rayed!!
Norma, know what you mean about getting antsy with the weather when working...isn't it nice now not to have to worry 'bout it??

hedgie said...

Sharon, are you up and about today? Able to work yet? Don't overdo!
Jim, what's the weather like out your way?
Loretta and Lolly, wedding pics were super. Deb, can't believe how lucky you were yesterday...great shots, as always!

magpie said...

Welcome back, Hedgie!
Keep warm and get well...


Eagle on the Take off branch at LW - straight up in the center of the cam view

magpie said...

I'm sure a visit by Liberty and/or Belle would make you feel Much Better, Lynn

magpie said...

And we a nearly full moon lurking behind all the clouds...

Okay - see you later.

magpie said...

Eagle at LW all gone,
me too.

magpie said...

that would be we have a nearly full moon. Now that Hedgie is back I got to watch my typoes! ☺ ♥

normabyrd said...

OH LOLLY!!---What I would give to have a sparkling clean house & all the decorations up!!---That must be WONDERFUL!!---I'm sure your guests will have a marvelous time!!---& I wish we lived closer too!---ho! ENJOY!!

hedgie said...

Megan, sure feel sorry for you having to be out in this sloppy weather! Try to keep warm and as dry as possible! Your wreaths are beautiful!!

hedgie said...

Margie, that wasn't a very long nap!!! Thanks for well-wishes and card!!

normabyrd said...

AFTERNOON HEDGIE!!---I have the oven on & it is so cozy & warm---May take a nap!!---Temp is 37°--but have a cold rain!----Yeah--HEDGIE---I know what you mean about the weather when I was working!!-----I would keep getting up & looking out the window to check the SNOW!! ho!

paula eagleholic said...

Wow is that eagle still at BWO

paula eagleholic said...

30 second cam is on....

Mits said...

they have been in and out, Paula

hedgie said...

Still cam working well, and loverly view! But Pop-up is showing only left half of nest....anyone else w/ same problem?

hedgie said...

Ho, Norma...that was me, too...just fretted myself silly!! And still had to get out and drive in it, nervous AND sleepy!! What's cooking in the oven, girl???

Red said...

My popup looks ok Hedgie.

paula eagleholic said...

Aha, I see Mits...they are out now!

Just had blue screen on live feed, but OK now.

Still pic here is fine...

Mits said...

yes, Lynn, my pop-up is awful, and have tried things that Red had suggested, and it just will not stay centered, I never use it.

Mits said...

blue screen here too, for a short time

hedgie said...

I had blue screen earlier, too, Helen.
Oh well, pop-up is handy, but not necessity!!

hedgie said...

Still playing catch up on newspapers, and doing laundry, and trying to watch some shows....getting dizzy from switching between tasks!!!

hedgie said...

And this weather is making me want a panda nap!! Y-a-w-n!!

Mits said...

then you should go take a panda nap, Lynn, don't want to get worse

NatureNut said...

Ho, Ho, Ho!!! Santa made some early visits today!! A 32" HD TV----Fubby had to call the North Pole & have one of the techie Elves help him hook it up!
The next visit brought Omaha Steaks filet mignons!!! Guess we are celebrating early!!

Read yesterday that Atlanta Zoo will be shutting down panda cam! Oh No, Mr. Bill!!! Santa needs to visit there.
Don't you think Atlanta residents & more will be so upset that they should do a fundraiser program???
Like donation collecting like lots of cams have?

paula eagleholic said...

Raindrops are fallin' on my nest...la dee da

paula eagleholic said...

Eagle eating at BWO

hedgie said...

Well, Mits, phone call interrupted thoughts of a nap! LOL...
Santa is being very good to you, Loretta...wow!! Fire up the grill! Is this the first big-screen you've had? When I got my first 42" I stupidly thought that maybe I could watch it w/o my glasses...no such luck!

Mema Jo said...

Atlanta Panda Cam showing us a little of Buta Buta
I am hoping that before the cam closes at the end of Dec, Luney could be crawling and get out of his little den.

Mema Jo said...

Eagle at BWO

Great pics on the BWO Gallery

Mema Jo said...

Back to the tree...........

NatureNut said...

Tried to catchy up on blog---Lolly, plz take pic of your spotless, decorated home!! Be awhile before that happens here!!
Hope Lynn, Ceil, Sissy, Dana & Paula's Mom are on the mend! Not excluding you, Sharon! You seem to be better every day!
Lynn, it's our largest TV so far. When he ordered & said 32", I thought that was the diagonal, like all older TVs. Not so---it's the length. Height isn't much bigger--I don't see a big difference, but I don't wear glasses watching either.

Mits said...

only 2 puppies on puppy cam...

NatureNut said...

On our noon news, was surprised to hear about snow in NO & Houston!! Said they had "thundersnow".
Wanda, Gerne's snowflake pics were great. Never saw so large w/points showing. That's a great idea about trying to catch a shot of them on dark background!!
Re: pop-up cam---I always get an uncentered view & w/the right-click, Show All, you get to see it, but not large at all.

Mits said...

Lynn, have you unblocked your e-mail yet from your trip, sent something to you and it still had the automatic msg, saying you will not be available til the 10th

Mits said...

I lower mine to 75%, but it is not worth looking at that size, so just keep regular up

Costume Lady said...

Paula, you singing Rain Drops, reminds me...when Gene and I were shopping the other day, I started singing going through the parking lot, and a horn started blowing. LOL I guess I set off it's burglar alarm. Ha, Ha!

Mits said...

Mits said...

ATLANTA UPDATE.......

Thursday, December 11
Yesterday morning, while I was cleaning one of Lun Lun’s dens, Xi Lan demonstrated grand improvement of his scooting abilities. I use the term scooting and not crawling because he has not yet incorporated his back legs when he moves around. He continues to pull himself with his front legs under his body and push with his back legs in a swimming motion. Back to my story- I was cleaning Den 1 (the L shaped den Lun Lun likes to carry Xi Lan into), Xi Lan was in the nest box in Den 2, and Lun Lun was eating bamboo in Den 3. Xi Lan was vocalizing his need to be fed and scooting about, but Lun Lun was busy eating her own meal and had not yet responded to his call. While cleaning, I noticed that his vocalizations had become a little softer, so I turned around to see what he was up to and noticed he was no longer in the nest box. Instead he was in the adjacent den where Lun Lun was eating! I am sad to say I do not really know how he managed it, as my back was turned during all the action. I also think Lun Lun was really unsure of how he got there as well. She stopped eating, looked down at him with a puzzled look, picked him up by the scruff, and quickly returned him to where she wanted him – the nest box. I guess all his scooting got him what he wanted, because upon returning him to the nest box, Lun Lun curled up with him and he nursed. Look out, Lun Lun – your days of Xi Lan staying where you want him are coming to an end fast!

Mits said...

Paula, WE CAM IS A TIGHTER SHOT NOW.

paula eagleholic said...

Yuppers...looks good.

magpie said...

Wow ! That is the best sound yet so far at NCTC - the raindrops...less static, and the Still Cam back on!

Thank you Steve and NCTC Techs ! xo ♥

Mits said...

NEST SUNSET 4:47P.M.

magpie said...

Is the wind blowing those raindrops sideways ?

NatureNut said...

Now that the night light is on our nest, do I detect Spidey web strands blowing from the bottom left to right? Thought at first it was rain, but don't see any in other places. Nuts!

Mits said...

looks like some kind of nest material to me.

Mits said...

nothing is visible on still cam

Mits said...

cardinals and chickadees on okie cam

magpie said...

Hi Nature Nut it does not show up on the Still Cam so that is a good sign.

Choo Choo sounding its mournful sound. Someone should write a Country Song about this situation!

Big Screen TV, eh? How about a Big Screen Computer Screen now?
xo ☺

Mits said...

ok see 3rd puppy on cam now

magpie said...

Oh, BWO cam is so interesting. looks like a big moon in middle of screen.
Looks like Pix PA is getting hammered too..

paula eagleholic said...

I thought it looked like grass,,,,could be some web stringys maybe

paula eagleholic said...

Yes, probably so....grass not as flexible

magpie said...

Full Moon Rising, isn't that a country song by Creedence Clearwater or something? Might have to go look for that, unless Megan beats me to it ! ☺

magpie said...

Oh, now, it is Bad Moon rising...whoops!

magpie said...

Think I'll pass on that one, not cheery enough....

NatureNut said...

I didn't see anything on Still, either!
Margy, newer 'puter has 18" diag.--big enough for me, but guess i9 would be nice to have bigger nests!!! Someone recently wrote about big 'puter screen. Was it Lolly?
This newer screen unfortunately is brighter and if you print out pics, they are too dark.Have to lighten each pic a couple notches in photo program before printing--Bummer!

Costume Lady said...

Loretta, I think it must be some kind of interference. It could't possibly be Spidey back...could it???? It is raining very hard right now. Belle and Lib have taken cover somewhere.

magpie said...

Deear at Pix Pa - a buck

magpie said...

This is surely the best Live Video we have had for many a long day, sound staying on, static minimal... verrrrry nice

NatureNut said...

No, Wanda. Spidey has probabloy been long gone to the happy hunting ground. I just thought it looked liked some old remaining strands that the wind picked up. It could be interference too?
If it's web, you need to go over there w/a Witches broom if you have one!! LOL
Or next time they work on it, they have to have Nu make it New! ☺

Nu really did do a good job of cleaning all the left over debis from when spider was there.

Well, now, I have an eagle cane, but I don't think it will reach that high. Vicki, in Illinois has a really looong one. We may have to call on her!

Red said...

I think what you are seeing is blowing rain .

Well, I am not a modern girl here yet, have a 20" diagonal on my little old non-flat screen TV, and a 15" diagonal on my not-flat computer screen, but for now "It works for me."
Now, if I was a big football fan, maybe not! ☺

Soon, Deb should return with reports of her adventures !

Costume Lady said...

We once saw something similar to what we are seeing now, on the Pa. cam. I think it was DEB who captured that shot. Just the way the infrared light was hitting the rain, I believe.

Mits said...

its almost like something has created a spout and water is running out of it fast

magpie said...

Speaking of Vicky....has anyone talked with her lately ?

I know one of our Dadsters sometimes has a report..is it Indiana Dave, also speaking of which: where has he been these days?

Well, time to start gettin' a move on, now that I have a nap behind me, got to head to the hospital to make a visit....

TTFN xo ♥

Oh cool I see car lights too Paula...at NCTC

Costume Lady said...

We are waiting on the rain to die down, so that we can cook steaks for our supper. I have salad made, mushrooms sauteed and we just have to wait. Oh, no...Mr. Gene said we may have to pan fry them...NO, NO, NO!!!

floralgirl said...

Well, if you are waiting for the rain to stop you may get to eat those steaks by tomorrow...

Red said...

Vicky is alive and well.

Mits said...

just checked your radar, Wanda, either you stand there with an umbrella or pan fry, you should get a George Foreman grill, they are great for when you can't go outside...I have one at the beach because we are not allowed to have grills on our balconies, for obvious reason, and I do hot dogs and hamburgers for the whole group when they are there, need to get a bigger one.
