A recent server and security upgrade rendered the weather photo gallery inoperable. Sadly its return as it was is unlikely. If you are interested in any of the older referenced images please contact us and we will provide access to the image.
Current weather conditions have been restored! The webcam however is still offline with no ETA on its return.
On 26-10-2014 a very active storm passed
overhead with a strike to the house taking out my weather station
and the PC that ran it and the webcam. It has left me with complete
system failure and it is unknown as to how long it will be before
I can get it back online, or indeed if it returns at all.
