Scott is going to make a change tomorrow to point the webcam to the north so can get live views of the fourmile fire west of Boulder. Let’s hope the wind calms down tonight and the fire fighters can get things under control tomorrow. Add a comment if there’s anything we can do to help the evacuated residents.
I finished updating the images for Oct 19th to Dec 29th last night. What a pain! Some days are missing due to problems with the old image capture code. Hopefully, this will be the last time as we’ve also finished some changes to improve the code. The site will now capture images every five minutes throughout the day and at the end of the day automatically get the daily video about 35 minutes after sunset. Once everything is smoothed out with this project next up is an update the site design and adding back the large images. The last designers made everything fit a smaller screen but that doesn’t really give the full effect. You can see the full size image here.
You may have noticed the image was stuck for the last week. We had a problem with the wireless network that prevented the cam from sending images. I got back to town and put in new hardware and hopefully we should be back in action.
