This blog has been almost totally content-driven from the get-go. Here you go folks, look at the pretty webcam pictures! If you wanted any background information about the locations of the cams, for the most part people were out of luck! With the National Park Service cams, I supplied links to the parks' websites, where anyone could get all the info they wanted. Other cams were trickier. Milos and Mille Lacs has websites that give details about their respective locations, but what about the WU cams? I don't know anything more about the Parc de Chateau in France any more than you do. I know it's in France, and that's about it!
So now, I'm going to try something new: Each cam will come with a little background information, along with the Weathersticker. I'm also going to add an eighth cam in order to get a little better worldwide coverage.

Wish me luck!

Did you know that Cancun didn't even exist before 1970? Built on part of the world's second largest coral reef, the Mexican Government helped finance the first nine hotels. The cam is from the Beach Palace Resort, a very exclusive(and expensive) all-inclusive resort!

To put it short and sweet, I had an all new blog almost finished early yesterday, when I accidentaly deleted it. Now, using a different computer without having a list of any of the cams I saved on my regular computer, I must find the new cams by memory and try to get this blog done by 7AM local!

Fire and ice: Elemental opposites, they are rarely seen coexisting, especially in the world of webcams. However, there are exceptions, and probably the best known worldwide is Mt. Etna, in Sicily. This volcano has the longest recorded history of eruptions, going back at least 3500 years, and scientists have estimated the volcano has been erupting for over 300,000 years, rising out of the Mediterranean. For the time being, with the cold and snow covering Europe, Etna is blanketed with white, all the while steaming and waiting for the next opportunity to erupt.
