Looks like USL is breaking up!!!

Postby d_s_144 » Fri Mar 20, 2020 3:22 pm

Cameras don't lie, and the Chapel Island Cam is telling me that the lake is breaking up already. That's a solid month ahead of last spring. It may be time for a drive since I'm in lockdown with the rest of the state. I'll isolate in my car for 5 hours. 21 confirmed Covid cases in Saratoga County, with a population of about 250,000.

Optimal health!

The USL webcam is down, NOW I feel isolated.

The camera works again and the lake appears to be free of its icy chains! Now we just need to eradicate the virus and hopefully the park can safely open and accept happy campers.

Just saw the first boat of the season on Saranac on the Chapel Island webcam. That was certainly a sight for sore eyes. See you on July 11 USL!

Nice! Still 50/50 if we will bother with our boat this year. Depends on if the US/Canada border opening gets delayed any further for one.

There's a spider on the Chapel Island camera lens, can someone run over there and shuffle him out of the way? That would be great. The lake looks AMAZING! See you in 3 weeks and three days!

The Chapel Island webcam has been offline for a week or so. I sent an email and they replied the next day stating that the camera is being moved to a new location. It's part of my morning routine, I hope it's back soon.

I was wondering what happened to that one. Thanks for the investigative work.
