and more...

Border Web cams go online again:  Perry says he's found the funds to have virtual watch up and running as early as January

When you are relaxing at the hot springs, be sure and smile - your on "border cam"!   :eusa_dance:

It's your tax dollars already hard at work..., for the most part.

The Big Horn Sheep cam has been down for sometime.  I'm sure the Texas Big Horn Society would appreciate your money.

McDonald Observatory - well, UT already has very deep pockets and they are getting deeper with the price of oil.  Tuition should be free at the University of Texas and TAMU for all the $ they are raking in.

Anyone heard or know when they plan on putting the GUMO webcam back up?  Appears to have been down since Sept '07.

Here's a site that includes pretty much any West TX webcam:

http://www.jac-ccc.org/webcams1.htm

Must be on a big pipeline, as the site comes up FAST.

Anybody have any idea when the Window Webcam will be back up? It's still stuck on May 12.
Update: looks like it's back up now...sort of...maybe...well, at least it now says November 21....

The GUMO webcam has been down even longer...
