They're calling it #snowmageddon on Twitter. Permalink to this paragraph

And on Flickr too. Permalink to this paragraph

I know it's snowing a lot back east cause it's raining a lot here on the California coast. And now it's raining some more. More rain here, more snow there. Pretty simple. ;-> Permalink to this paragraph

I just posted a twit saying "People in the eastern U.S.-- more snow headed your way. Hugs, California" Permalink to this paragraph

We're all in it together. Just some of us are more in it than the rest. Permalink to this paragraph

I miss the snow, so here's what I want to do. Permalink to this paragraph

Where are snowcams? I want webcams in American and Canadian cities that show the snow? I'd like to accumulate a list here. Permalink to this paragraph

Here's a cam on West Dayton St in Madison. It's a live feed. You can see the snow blowing and cars going down the street. Wish there were audio too. The Comp Sci building is on West Dayton if I remember correctly. This building is quite closePermalink to this paragraph

Funny how Madison looks the same 30 years later. ;-> Permalink to this paragraph

Here are some other Madison-area webcamsPermalink to this paragraph

Post a comment if you know of one! Permalink to this paragraph
