I finally got tired of waiting for the old server host to restore my data, so I pulled a backup copy from 02/14.  It's my bad that I didn't have a newer copy, but at least I don't have to start over from scratch.  I plan on reloading all of the Weezy words over the next couple of days.  There's going to be a few thing that are going to go missing for good, but I'm looking forward to getting on with adding some new stuff.  Thanks for you patience.

The company that is mapping the world has been back though our fine town.  This time they picked a bright sunny day and spent some time here.  Looks like they mapped most of the town.  All the major paved (?) streets seem to have been covered.  It's an interesting exercise to try to find your house and see how bad the yard looks.  You can check it out on the Google Map page starting with a fine shot of downtown.

The webcam has returned!!  For all you fans of watching my propane barell you can see it here.  There is some new hardware in use this year so hopefully the stablility will be a little better than last year.  My son won't be rebooting the computer everytime his Minecraft game freezes.  My favorites are the sunset pictures.  So all you snowbirds that think you have to go south as soon as the temp dips below 60, check in and see what fun the rest of us are putting up with this winter.
