Global status: We have switched to a new Internet Service Provider. In the long run this will result in increased stability and enhanced features, in the short run it's a little like changing airplanes without landing. Please bear with us while we work out the kinks and email me if you notice issues that should be added to our "punch list".
Tom Wilson,

Status notice, 1/24/2017:
1) We have installed a new higher resolution 1600x1200 pixel camera at the station.
2) The station page now features a panorama generated from the new camera images. Individual images are available by clicking the appropriate links.
3) The new camera views (and panorama) are slowly creeping west. We will periodically reset the views until we can obtain a replacement camera. Old camera views are unaffected. We regret any incinvenience.
4) Predicted water level and measured-predicted level not reporting correctly. Will address as soon as possible.
