Next week is looking pretty good... or not... depending on which weather site you prefer lol. Campers have been complaining about the weather at Fish Creek/Rollins for weeks. We haven't had much luck ourselves so far over 4 trips. This year is reminding me of 2006 I believe it was....

I keep an archive of chapel island image automatically captured every 30 minutes. Maybe I should setup a calendar showing images for each hour so we can easily check back and see how the summer has been going. Would be a lot of rainy shots this year!

:D We are supposed to be leaving today,just curious as to what other people are hearing about the weather this week, we heard from some there was flooding, but we called the site and they said no flooding as of yet..some are not sure if we should go, so trying to get some feedback as to what the weather is actually like at the moment, is it constant downpour or off and on,with the sun breaking thru at times.. :partlycloudy:

Here in Potsdam it was heavy rain all morning but it might be moving out and we had a little sun for a second.

Just for fun. You can now check out webcam images for each day - 8 am, 12pm and 4pm. Doesn't really look all that bad!

That's a fun history of the webcam photos. I'm surprised you don't have one set up right at Fish Creek, but that island one has to be pretty similar weather. I would have missed today's sunshine if I had blinked at the wrong time. Good weather for ducks! Our rain gauge at home has over 2 inches in it, I think it was last dumped Sunday.

Would be hard to setup one at Fish Creek, the Trading Post though perhaps but then again Phil is a busy guy!
