Welcome To the webcam page...

This is my web cam page. I set this up so I could see what the weather is like when I'm away. On a good day you can see the water of the bay. Sometimes all you see is fog. It'll be insteresting to see what this winter brings to the cam. It is now Streaming. It used to refresh every 30 seconds.

The camera looks out above my patio, across the 400 Highway and Wellington Street West, through the Wellington Plaza and towards Kempenfelt Bay and Lake Simcoe. In other words Barrie, Ontario, Canada.

Some Details...

The camera has been active for over 3 years now, sadly due to bad planning, poor equipment and two cats that liked to move the tripod. The first version of the camera kept getting moved and would most of the time end up facing the wall by mid-day.

Now it's mounted up and away from adventurous cats, and cannot be moved accidentally.

"Web cam is now STREAMING.. changed the software to Yawcam. Seems stable. Server jamming may have been due to old cam software will have to wait and see.

"Web cam seems to be stable and not sliding sideways like it previously used to. Maybe the wall tack is doing it's job this time. We'll see how it weathers the winter.
